SLO police searching for suspects who damaged Costco parking lot

March 14, 2024


The San Luis Obispo Police Department is asking the public for help with locating three individuals who allegedly damaged the Costco parking lot last weekend.

Police are circulating surveillance images of the suspects, as well as of their vehicles: a Toyota 4Runner, a BMW sedan and a Ford Mustang. The incident occurred at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, according to police.

It appears the suspects may have been doing doughnut maneuvers in their vehicles, leaving skid marks.

Police ask that anyone who can identify the suspects call Officer Bravo at (805) 594-8081 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.

I drive an older Honda Civic, work 8/40 and and am paying off a house. These guys probably deal drugs, live in HASLO housing, and do street stunts in expensive cars.

Crime of the century, parents need to take their keys for a month.

This is really dumb and embarrassing that these kids are treated like they are criminals because they left marks on the asphalt in a shopping center. WHO CARES. Maybe spend time on things that are more important.

It was reported that there was $30,000 worth if damage. That’s more than just skidmarks.

I totally agree, doing donuts in a parking lot was a right of passage in my day, now it’s a act of terrorism:(

It might cost $30,000.00 to slurry seal and stripe the entire parking lot, not to touch up a few burn out marks, if it’s even necessary!!!

Definitely time to get higher resolution security cameras for the parking lot. You can probably buy such cameras locally, such as at, well, Costco.

They aren’t “suspects”. We can see that they did it. And not “allegedly”. Now if they are arrested, named and charged, then they can be an identified “suspect”. Otherwise, anyone we see “doing it”…. did it. Drives me crazy.

Either way, if they do get caught, a slap on the wrist is what they will get.

Don’t want to upset them too much!!!
