2 break into industrial shops in Livermore, steal computers, printers, more

Surveillance cameras offer police photographs of suspects

Livermore police said yesterday that they are investigating two commercial burglaries that occurred Saturday night in an industrial area in the eastern part of the city.

The burglaries happened between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. at businesses on Contractors Street, police said.

Police said two suspects forced their way in using a prying tool to get into locked areas. The burglars stole computers, printers and other electronics.

The suspects are described as two white males with medium builds. One suspect was wearing baggy pants, a T-shirt and a light-colored hooded sweatshirt. The second suspect was wearing light-colored pants with a dark-colored zip-up jacket.

Investigators were able to obtain surveillance photographs of the suspects entering the businesses.

Police are asking for the public's help to identify the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Livermore police at (925) 371-4900.

"Police are asking for the public's help to identify the suspects."

Wouldn't it help if the photograph were published so more could see it?

Hmmmm ... the grocery workers' union has brought several thousand union plants into the tri-city area. Hmmmm ... some of them probably can't afford groceries at all the unionized grocery stores in the area. Hmmmm ... so who would be a logical suspect here?

Hmmm ... further, aren't the police unionized? Hmmm ... it wouldn't be in the police' interest to post photos of the union criminals would it? Hmmmm ... unions tend to support our communist muslim president. Hmmmm ... I wonder why no one has suggested that Obama is behind this.

Or ask the Editor to get us the pictures.
And change "picture if suspect" in headline to

"picture of suspect".

Often the bad guys are responsible for a series of thefts.
Hope to see follow ups and that the police catch and prosecute them!
