CALLING ALL CARS, BE ON THE LOOKOUT . . .

That’s the broadcast that we are making this evening -- we need some help. This morning one of our neighbors on Chianti Way called to report a Package Thief (AKA “Porch Pirate”) in his neighborhood. The neighbor told officers he saw a strange vehicle parked in front of their neighbor’s home. The neighbor watched as the driver of the car went up to the porch, picked up a package and then returned to her car. The neighbor confronted the female driver, who replied that the home belonged to her grandparents (not true). The driver then got into the car (CA License 6XFF451) and drove away. As the driver was leaving, the neighbor quickly snapped photos of the driver and her car. While the photo of the driver is not the typical style we put on a wanted poster, it’s what we have in this case. When Officers arrived in the neighborhood, they were unable to find the vehicle. Officers have since learned the packages that were taken off of the porch were the Christmas gifts for the children at the home and had been left 20 minutes prior.

The identified car comes back as not registered. We are looking for help from members of the community in locating this vehicle and the person who stole the packages. If you can help us identify the suspect (AKA “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”) or locate the vehicle, please contact the OPD Tip Line at OPD@ci.oakley.ca.us. Let’s find those gifts and get them back home!!!

Last week Troop 152 Boy Scouts Nolan Lozano and Frank McNulty Beede were honored by the Oakley City Council for their accomplishment of attaining the rank of Eagle Scout.

For his Eagle Scout project, Nolan led a team to construct three picnic tables for his “Breaking Bread” homeless outreach church small group. He also raised money to feed 60 people the day the table were delivered.

For his Eagle Scout project, Frank led a team in the construction of eight benches at Delta Vista Middle School which will serve thousands of students over their lifespan.
Congratulations to Nolan and Frank!

POLICE INVESTIGATORS ARE RECOGNIZED

At Tuesday Night’s Council Meeting, the Mayor recognized the work of OPD Detective Minister and DA’s Investigator Holcombe by awarding them the Oakley Police Department’s "Medal of Merit". Both of these investigators worked on the investigation of a series of computer threats that were initially made to several students and then expanded to include the entire student body and members of the School District Administration. These two investigators dedicated hundreds of hours in investigating the threats by interviewing dozens of witnesses and researching the computer networks that were used to transmit the various threats. Through their investigation, the detectives were able to identify a suspect who was currently residing in Texas. These two investigators traveled to Texas where they worked with local authorities to locate and apprehend the suspect. Our detectives were able to recover a significant amount of evidence linking the suspect to all of the threats that had been made. The suspect was later extradited back to California and has been charged with a series of crimes. The efforts of these two investigators resolved an incident that had significantly impacted our community. The Mayor was joined by Superintendent Volta, Principal Manke, and DA’s Chief Inspector Mulligan in recognizing the investigators for their outstanding work. We’re lucky to have them on the OPD Team!!!
