ONGOING COMMERCIAL/AGRICULTURAL BURGLARIES
February 03, 2014

***REWARD***$1,000***REWARD***

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Rural Crime Unit is requesting assistance from the public in solving 19 reported commercial burglaries that occurred in San Luis Obispo County between August 2013 and January 2014. Though the investigation is on-going, it is believed that members of the local communities may have information that would lead to the arrest of those responsible and prevent future theft.

 

In each of the commercial burglaries, the suspects entered metal shop buildings by forcing entry, and took welding equipment and associated tools (grinders, small motors, high-end hand tools). The evidence thus far indicates that at least four suspects are involved in each burglary and the shoe tracks left behind are similar at most of the crime scenes. Also, at each location, either Miller brand or Lincoln brand welding equipment was targeted or taken by the suspects. In one of the most recent burglaries, it is believed that the suspect/s visited the location a few days prior to the theft.

 

The Sheriff’s Rural Crimes Unit is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying suspects, storage locations, or suspicions of possible casing by the suspects prior to the thefts. 

 

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000.00 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of suspects or the recovery of stolen property.
