$662,000 investment scam probed

Pleasanton police are investigating the theft of more than half a million dollars from a Muirwood Drive resident.

A complaint, filed 2:50 p.m. on Jan. 24, alleges $662,000 was taken in an investment fraud. Police have a suspect but have not released the name. No other information was available.

In other police reports:

* A gas-powered paint sprayer valued at $3,000 was reported stolen at 10:24 a.m. Jan. 22. The sprayer was taken from a locked storage container at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.

* What would have been a misdemeanor arrest for shoplifting was bumped to a felony last week for a San Leandro man because of his prior convictions. Nassem Adel Yasin, 25, was arrested Jan. 18 in the theft of a $34 wallet from Solstice Sunglasses in the Stoneridge Shopping Center. Yasin, who was arrested at 8:29 p.m., has at least three previous shoplifting convictions, which led to the felony arrest.

Under the law, those arrested are considered innocent until convicted.
