This morning, at approximately 6:30am, an alert citizen called our Department to report a suspicious vehicle in their neighborhood, near Sonora Ave and Kempton Ln. The vehicle was stopped by our officers. It was occupied by three men. One of the men had been a suspect in a car theft in Brentwood last year. The car was taken while warming up on the street. We are fairly certain these men were in the area looking for cars to steal.
If you feel the need to warm your car, please be sure to lock the vehicle.
Thanks to the citizen who called the police. They probably saved a few neighbors the heartache of a stolen car. Another great example of the public helping the police to keep the community safe. We appreciate your help today!
