Car thieves warned about increased patrols


Undercover police officers will be patrolling the area of Pacific East Mall and the Hilltop Mall in order to bust car thieves.

“We’re doing lots of extra patrols,” according to a post on the department’s Facebook page. “That pedestrian a shopper or a cop?!”

Early this morning, police said, a Richmond police K9 helped nab a 30-year-old suspected car thief on Barrett Avenue. The suspect, who has not yet been identified, attempted to flee from officers about 2 a.m., but failed to negotiate a turn from Barrett Avenue onto Interstate Highway 80.
