We’re seeing evidence of a sharp uptick in property crimes experienced by towns and and cities in the 24/680 as local law enforcement charts their statistics and reports on possible defensive strategies to their respective civic leaders.
With it’s bustling downtown shopping district Walnut Creek has not proven immune from the problem, the city’s police devoting both officers and equipment to their anti-crime effort.
The photos here are representative of one successful interdiction effort, with officers stopping this car at around 2 p.m. on February 19 and having a talk with its four occupants.
The police say the four eventually confessed to stealing $2,700 worth of clothing and other items from a store in Broadway Plaza, which was recovered as shown.
Been saying this for years…. Policies like Prop 47, Prop 57, AB 109, etc are resulting in more crime. “Bail reform”/ending cash bail will have the same effect
Something tells me thats not an inhaler on the roof next to the beer cans.
Good stop officers!
