Neighbors on quiet Solana Court in Lafayette report that a group of car burglars were hard at work on their block early Friday morning when the law was called on to intervene.
Three men were arrested after a sizable police response was called into the area shortly after 3 a.m., the neighbors said.
“They (police) fingerprinted cars and I believe towed one for evidence,” one neighbor reported. “Strange, secluded street for this kind of activity!”
Investigators found hundreds of stolen items in the recovered vehicle and are working to reconnect owners with their belongings.
Chief Benjamin Alldritt said his officers arrested:
- Noa Tangi, age 18, Hayward
- Khalid Ammari, age 22, Hayward
- Watson Opeti, age 19, Hayward
