Construction sites in burn zones burglarized.

This morning the Sheriff’s Office and the Windsor Police Department have taken several burglary reports of constructions sites. In the 100 block of Willowgeen Pl. in the Larkfield burn zone there three storage trailers reportedly broken into and tools removed. In the 80 block of Dorchester Ln. in the Larkfield burn zone there was a single storage trailer broken into and construction tools removed. In Windsor at a construction site near Hembree and Victory Lane, there was another construction trailer broken into with tools removed. These crimes happened last night or in the early morning hours.

 

In all three of these locations, the trailers were locked tight and some were blocked by heavy equipment that had to be moved to gain entry. The thieves took some time to gain entry and had to make a lot of noise according to the investigating deputy.

 

“Victimizing people who are trying to rebuild their homes in the face of the worst disaster in Sonoma County history is completely unacceptable,” said Sheriff Rob Giordano. He added that the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office will be investigating these crimes to the full extent and will be providing extra patrols of all construction areas. Area residents are also asked to take extra vigilant efforts to watch out for suspicious people that don’t belong in the construction areas at night and to call Sheriff’s Dispatch at 707-565-2121 if anything suspicious is observed.
