We’ve written about this so much now it seems redundant and boring and, well, we’re just not so we’ll let the picture tell the story – this being Labor Day and all.
Officers in San Ramon stopped a car for a minor traffic infraction Sunday, determined the driver was on active probation and then – lo and behold – found a cache of stolen goods valued at nearly $2,500 in the car.
The “Usual Suspects,” serial shoplifters and petty theft artists who make the rounds of local stores picking off items like this, routinely gather up goods for easy sale on the “secondary market” or for use in the local drug trade.
If you aren’t already aware of it, they are hitting businesses in the 24/680 really hard – with regular shoplifting “routes” and favorite stores. This person was apparently stopped, after a nifty piece of work in San Ramon, but there are a lot of others out there.
