Sheriff’s Crime Log

Deputies responded to a burglary in the 700 block of Foothill Boulevard on Aug. 26 at 2:32 a.m. The business owner was woken up to Ring notifications on his phone stating that there was movement inside his business. He observed two to three unknown male adults shatter the rear glass door and enter the business. They then broke down the wooden door to the victim’s office and ransacked it. They took a black and blue model Lamborghini car on display and left through the shattered rear door. The victim also got surveillance video of the suspects leaving in a white Mercedes C-Class, but due to the low video quality he was not able to get a license plate number.

A grand theft was reported in the 200 block of Starlane Drive between Aug. 19 at 3 p.m. and Aug. 22 at 8:30 a.m. The victim said that his catalytic converter was stolen from his green 2014 Toyota Prius, while it was parked on the street in front of his residence. He became aware of the incident when he attempted to start his car and heard a loud noise coming from it.

A petty theft was reported in the 600 block of Foothill Boulevard on Aug. 26 between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The victim was shopping at T.J. Maxx with her two children and had two shopping carts in which she placed her purse in one of them. The zipper of the purse was open and upon approaching the cashier to pay for her items, she noticed that her wallet was missing from her purse. About an hour later, she received an alert indicating a suspicious transaction on her credit card and called to say it was not her. Items in her wallet were stolen, which included money, various credit and debit cards, memberships cards to Costco and AAA and her driver’s license.

Officers responded to a petty theft report in the 900 block of Foothill Boulevard on Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. While the victim was shopping in a store near the bath section, a male wearing a white shirt and blue jeans bumped into her multiple times while she was shopping. The victim believed that this person acted as a distraction while an accomplice stole her wallet from her purse, which was in her shopping cart. She did not see a person take her wallet and did not realize it was missing until she was ready to pay for her items. The suspects then attempted to use her credit card and the transaction was declined. The victim’s wallet contained her driver’s license, money and credit cards. She said a similar incident occurred to another customer who was shopping right next to her.
