Livermore police are warning people about a rash of recent robberies targeting construction and trade crews.
Since last fall, police said two dozen of these vehicles with visible lockboxes for were stolen. Many of those cars were white Ford vans or trucks.
“Too often, we have community members that (say) ‘I saw it, but I didn’t want to bother you…it made me suspicious but I thought you didn’t want to know.’ Said Lt. John Hurd of the Livermore Police Department. “We Want to know.”
Police say the cars are usually recovered, but the equipment or work tools often aren’t found.
Authorities are asking the public to call the Livermore police if they see suspicious behavior in the area.
