On Aug 25, I called the Fremont Police to report suspicious characters who looked very much like they didn't belong and like they were doing something illegal. One looked like the lookout person. Unfortunately, I did not give very good details as I was driving by and they were looking at me strangely with my kids in the car, so my report wasn't a very detailed one. I did give their location and a brief description. I didn't have enough details but I thought it better to call with something than to not call at all.
Unfortunately, the police dept. has been busy today so an officer just now came to pursue the call. I told him they are probably long gone. He didn't realize that the call was placed awhile ago as he was ready to pursue the call. He said they were busy. He seemed surprised that the call was old.
I hope a house hasn't been broken into or some other crime committed.
Please be on the lookout.
When we were visiting our niece in San Diego recently, her barking pug woke me up at 4am. I looked outside and saw a hooded look-out guy. I yelled out at him and he made up a story and left. I noticed my niece's husband's car cockeyed, out of it's stall. I had called the police, not realizing he was breaking into my niece's husband's car. They were trying to steal it and in the process, they caused major damage, breaking the ignition and all door locks, plus some windows. If I didn't yell out, their SUV would have most likely been long-gone across the border as that's what has happened to most of the cars stolen from the complexes in that area that are never seen again (they are almost at the border). My niece is in the Navy (usually leaves for work around 5am), has 2 little ones and they don't make much money nor do they have good insurance or any tow service (they are young). This left them with one car for awhile as they struggle, working two different schedules and in taking the baby and toddler to two different day cares. I helped them out as much as I could. The San Diego police too were understaffed and came much later after the criminals were long gone.
I just get so frustrated when people's lives are interfered with because of crimes.
I highly respect our police dept. and understand that they are understaffed with more important crimes to take care of.
In a perfect world, it would be nice if we could prevent crimes by catching folks when being reported...
