Rash of vehicle break-insDan McDonald
Vehicles parked in East Quincy were targeted by thieves last weekend.
The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office received at least 11 reports related to items stolen between Friday morning and Sunday afternoon.
The sheriff’s office said it is actively investigating the crimes, but had not identified any suspects as of Tuesday morning.
“It appears to be at least a couple people doing this,” said Sgt. Steve Peay. “It looks like they are randomly going around looking for unlocked vehicles.”
A caller Saturday night reported chasing two young males who were breaking into cars in that area.
The report said the two were about 6 feet tall, wearing dark clothing and carrying flashlights.
Items reported stolen during the weekend spree include at least two wallets, checks, cash, a camera, a GPS device, a radar detector and a satellite radio.
One victim said the thieves probably smoke because her car smelled of cigarettes.
The calls to the Sheriff’s Office began coming in Friday morning at 7:45 a.m. The last call was made at 2:45 p.m. Sunday.
Most of the calls (seven) were made Friday morning.
Anyone with information is asked to call 283-6375.
