March 27, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 5.49.02 PMPaso Robles police are searching for a man who has been scavenging for items to steal from vehicles at night.

Early Wednesday morning, a resident of the 1600 block of Leah Way reviewed home surveillance footage and noticed a man looking into and attempting to enter several parked cars. The attempted theft occurred at approximately 3:06 a.m. according to the Paso Robles Police Department.

Surveillance footage does not show the suspect successfully breaking into any vehicles. But, around the same time, two vehicles were broken into nearby in the 300 block of Susannah Lane, police say.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s who was wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt over a long-sleeved white shirt. He was clean-shaven and had a shaved head.

Police also say the suspect appeared to be wearing a glove on his right hand to conceal his identity. An investigation into the case is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the police department at 327-6464. Those who have pertinent information, but wish to remain anonymous, may call Crime Stoppers at 549-STOP.

Garden-variety scum.

Very annoying watching this punk boldly try to take the things of others. Having lost precious family artifacts to scum, my thinking is this person needed to be approached on the spot by some of the neighborhood boys. Thump him until he can’t see, walk, or orient himself, a little “field justice” as LE calls it.

Might reduce the recidivism problem found in ordinary criminal justice system outcomes. Might save somebody else the irretrievable loss of grandma’s locket, ring, etc.

Go ahead, thumbs down or term me a Neanderthal.

A larger picture would have been helpful….I mean….if the police happen to be asking for the public’s help, that is.
