Some families in Altadena woke up this morning to find out the hard way that they're now a statistic, and not a good one.
If you have a Chevy Silverado truck, your truck is a target for thieves who are stealing the tailgates.
Not so long ago, it was the rear seats from Cadillac Escalades that were the prime target.
Over the last few weeks, tailgates from Chevy Silverados have been stolen from all over Southern California at very high rates.
Please find a way to park your vehicles in a garage or behind a gate or fence so you're less likely to be a victim.
If you have neighbors who may not see these posts from the Sheriff's Station, please let them know that these vehicles are being vandalized at high rates.
If you have a suggestion about how we can more effectively get the word out to the community so we can be less vulnerable targets or so we can catch criminals in the act, please speak up.
If you see something - say something!!
Please continue to be vigilant and report suspicious activity by calling the Sheriff's Station - 626 798 1131.
As always, stay safe and help keep your neighborhood safe!
