I’ve been hearing about PG&E impostors from other neighborhoods; now they’re hitting closer home. The Parks Station Police newsletter carried a report of a theft on 1th April in Midtown Terrace:
“1:30 PM Glenview & Burnett Theft of Credit Cards, Checks
“Suspect posed as a private contractor working for PG&E. Victim allowed him into her backyard where the suspect distracted the victim while an accomplice burglarized her home.”
So if someone says they’re from PG&E and they’ve come to help you – it probably makes sense to call the company. And not on the number the person gives, but the one from the phonebook or 411.
- The newsletter reported a traffic collision (without any details about who collided with what, but a bicycle was involved): 9:12 AM Twin Peaks & Panorama, Unsafe Speed for Bicyclist Conditions.
- It also had 4 instances of thefts from cars in the Twin Peaks Parking lot – all in the daytime, when presumably there would be people around, but it still happened. Also, lots from other areas including one inside a parking garage.
- A bicycle was stolen from 100 Crestline, which is over on the other side of Twin Peaks – but just as a heads up to all the riders in our neighborhood. I feel like everyone I know who rides has had a bike stolen some time. Maybe we should microchip them. (The bikes, not the riders.)
