Oakland Police Tell Residents Not To Confront Auto Burglars

Police in Oakland, California are telling residents not to confront people breaking into their cars after seven suspects were arrested in three incidents late last month.

"The individuals involved in locked auto burglaries have become extremely brazen. Something that’s typically a non-violent crime has become much more dangerous for police and for the community," said Oakland interim assistant police chief, Tony Jones. "We want to caution the public. Don’t try to engage with these individuals who are breaking into your car."
