One thing seems abundantly clear, folks prone to car burglary apparently don’t read NEWS24/680.
We’ve advised readers of the Walnut Creek Police Department’s use of a wired “BAIT Car” designed to record and track burglars intent on taking the vehicle – and of its apparent success in catching the unwary, albeit criminally minded.
Police say their dispatchers were alerted to someone tampering with their car (which for obvious reasons was not described) on Sunday (no time, location provided).
Officers were sent to the area of activation where they located Sean Stuart, no age or hometown given, and he was detained – eventually admitting to the burglary, according to police.
Mr. Stuart was arrested and transported to county jail while Walnut Creek police said the incident serves “as another reminder to criminals not to commit crimes in our city.”
