WHAT’S THE “C” STAND FOR?
Police were called to the Shop-n-Save at the 1900 block of Francis just after 2 a.m. An employee there said a patron she knew as “Big C” came in, and she went outside to chat with him. That’s when he snatched her zebra-print purse, accused her of setting him up and fled in a car. The purse contained the victim’s ID, court papers and $50 cash, among other items.
A Corell Contractor Inc. employee called police at 7:34 a.m. to report an overnight theft that took place at a job site at the 6200 block of Grand Avenue — the Walnut Creek Bridge project. Items missing included three side cab windows off a Bobcat skid-loader, priced at $2,000, and the door with a latch, $1,500.
VACANT AND VULNERABLE
The victim called police at 3:22 p.m. to report a burglary at his vacant residence, which is on the market, at the 6700 block of Indianola Avenue. He said he lives out of town and only checks on the home every few weeks, but Remax Realty, which is contracted to sell the house, has documentation of every visit made by a realtor. Items missing include an air compressor ($300), a 60-pound electric break hammer and cart ($1,200), an electric generator ($1,000), copper pipe ($140) and four buckets of copper and brass fittings ($800).
