Great job Pleasanton Police! We'll see more and more problems on that side of town once the new BART station opens.

Let's pay the police officers (and firefighters) more money! They put their lives on the line every time they answer a call.

I would bet these two were from Oakland. You know, the people there are not worth robbing. The new BART station will make it only worse. The mall will be having problems for sure. Hopefully the police will stay on this activity. Good Luck people of Pleasanton. Don't let the scum win.

You are all so right that mention it'll only get worse once BART is opened for business. Look for Stoneridge Mall to turn into another Newpark or Southland in the coming years. There's more money on this side of the hill. If there's any silver lining - transportation cost to nearby Santa Rita jail will be minimal.

So glad PPD makes their presence known in this town! This is exactly why I love P-town. Let's continue to keep it free of scum like that! Way to go PPD!

BART will likely add to the crime already in Plutonia. Have you already wiped out henry the child molester from your memories? The creepo that killed his parents? The greedy guys who pulled off insider information tricks? Get real...crime is everywhere, just like G_d!

Not to mention clergy who break the law...wake up and quit pointing the finger to everybody else...it's in your own homes and back yards! Presently, many of your children are vandals, tomorrow some of them will become felons...

cheerio...

I've said from the time it was first proposed, that putting a BART station next to Stoneridge Mall was a really stupid idea. Stoneridge and Downtown Dublin better get ready a wave of scum. The Stoneridge muggings, already a problem, are bound to see a big spike, not to mention the drug trade. Get ready for a bunch of Oscar Grant types riding BART to P-town. We will be having Fair Scum in P-town 365 days a year now.

Even with the current BART station not being that close, we already were dealing with a load of scum at Hacienda Crossings, and auto thefts at Dublin Ford. I'm sure when the Toyota dealership moves there that they are going to have the same problem.

Kudos for a great job by the PPD for the lastest arrests. Are Pleasanton taxpayers going to get socked for the extra money needed to police the impending scum wave?

Brihana Hanible, 19, and Terrell Reams, 21 well now let's just add genius to their decision making. Two blacks kids in a white community do not stick out like a sore thumb do they?

As citizens we need to be aware of suspicious activity and report it immediately!! Call PPD 931-5100 and report anything that seems suspicious. I have put the number in my cell phone just in case. We need to look out for each other.

The Pleasanton police lived at the BART station when it first opened. For the longest time it worked to keep crime down. The criminals got off the train and the police red-carpet welcome was "welcome, but don't even think about getting away with crime here. We're serious about making sure we and our property are safe."
Reviving that policy might accomplish the same thing. If it does not work, a police substation at the mall might discourage visitors from committing crime here. The mall will also have to be more prepared. If it does become another Southland or Newpark they lose big time so I'm sure they will want to help.
The BART police will have to increase their presence here as well as on the trains.

You think the new BART station will increase crime? Just wait until the West Las Positas interchange is built. Easy access to many neighborhoods in Pleasanton. How many on/off ramps dump off into residential neighborhoods? It will be a 2-fer -> crime and traffic. Take a look at Washington Ave in San Leandro. Yes, the WLPI is still in the Pleasanton General Plan.

West Las Positas was taken out of the General Plan that is up for adoption. City should move to build a second overcrossig to straighten our West Las Positas Blvd. and to improve safety thus taking it out of play as an interchange.

Thanks for the reminder about the General Plan update. You are right, there is a good chance this time that the West Las Positas Interchange will be removed finally. But I would caution folks not to assume it is a done deal just yet. I sure hope it gets removed from the General Plan and there are no challenges. Can you imagine the impact on traffic and crime it would have. Here is the link to the City's General Plan webpages for anyone that is interested==> Web Link

These people didn't need public transportation, they had their own car. Thieves do not steal tv's, computers and large guns and then hop on the Bart. My husband and I love the Bart. Cuts down on emissions and saves us a hectic ride into the city.

Calm down. You all are simply a bunch of ignorant adults. We already have a better-than-most area around the current BART station, which is in some random spot in town. This one is going to be at one of the most populous and active parts of town, where there are going to be hundreds of people each day, so..

Obviously there are going to be PPD, BART Police, AND Stoneridge Security patrolling the area. More so than the oddly placed BART we have now. Everyone knows that's where the kids are, where the activity is, and thus, one of the most heavily guarded areas.

Calm down. Oakland has some very, very kind people in it, much kinder than the racist, bigotry folk here. Stop being so ignorant.
