It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and car burglars are thankful for any early presents left behind in vulnerable cars – particularly if the item is a nice, juicy laptop or other electronic device.
There are multiple reports of at least two sets of thieves at work, making frequent and repeated hits in Lafayette and Pleasant Hill and other areas likely to have what they seek.
The hits are very fast and police are in catch-up mode as the crews come into town, ply their trade, and leave on the nearest freeway.
Descriptions of the perpetrators are thin as they are slippery but we believe a black KIA SUV and a blue Lexus are involved. It’s not much to go on but it may be enough to save you some pain. If you can’t afford to lose it, don’t leave it in your car – what else can we say?
