Several suspects burglarize ammunition from San Lorenzo store

Bay Area

SAN LORENZO, Calif. (KRON) — Police are investigating reports of burglaries across the East Bay.

The Big 5 Sporting Goods on Hesperian Blvd in San Lorenzo was already boarded up ahead of the election, the same as many other businesses taking precautions after a year of unrest.

However, a Big 5 corporate employee said he received a security alert and saw an estimated 20 people through surveillance cameras running in around 9:40 p.m. on Wednesday.

Police arrived a bit too late — no suspect was in sight, but a pellet gun and bullet shells were sprawled across the parking lot.

Witnesses said people broke in and got through Big 5’s metal barrier and stole ammunition, which police later confirmed.

Corporate and police believe the rifles are secure and locked.

Police are working on reviewing the surveillance and have been contacted for more information by KRON4.
