I have Great news -
Police called me last night and told me they got fingerprints out of my car-
asked me if I knew these 2 men - I said no-
Both are mexican juveniles-

One is in jail right now on another armed robbery charge -
Both have long rap sheets -
Detective said they have a good idea who the other 4 robbers are-
has thier car on dash cam video as robbers drove away from my house -

Tried to look them up on facebook but they have common names so
pretty much impossible to find -

I have to go downtown tuesday and sign papers stating that I do not know these guys
and write a formal statement -

Detective told me he was Very impressed with the dash cam audio-video
said it was Very clear and there was 2 men in my car talking about robbery
Hope I get to hear what they said - but I doubt it -

I am kind of surprised it was fingerprints that caught these guys-
would think robbers would wear gloves - just stupid I guess -

Got to hand it to the Crime scene lady who found the finger prints in my car-
Job Well Done -

Thanks for the update groovy, what a crap experience to have had. Glad it sounds as if justice may work out favorably.

I'm still not clear on WHERE this happened, I scanned pretty quick.

Texas? People seem to be talking about Texas.

This type of robbery is really rare, but they DO happen. As for all of them having guns, I'd believe that. All the bangers in my neighborhood pack. SF East Bay (pig latin for "Beast"). There are a few home invasion robberies here, but nearly all of them are targeted toward fellow gangbangers or other criminals who they know have cash/drugs in the house. I feel no urge to have guns available outside of a locked safe, unloaded. I'm not involved with bangers or drugs, so I'm not a target. I actually feel a little LESS secure now that the thug next door and all his homies-hangers-on are gone, no one was going to mess around on our block with them out there all the time rattling their trunks and smoking weed. And test-firing their handguns in the air every few weeks. Ah, the joy of living in the East Bay!

Someone mentioned before that these criminals don't **** where they eat, they commute to a town they don't frequent very often. Most of the arrests of people breaking into cars/stores/homes near Stanford University are people from my side of the Bay.

Best defense is to not have anything anyone wants to steal! And a big red van doesn't hurt, either (like my sprinter).

Oh, and dash cams are now as cheap as $20, or $80 for a decent one at Costco.

did not get to meet with police yesterday and sign papers/make statement-

a few days ago a Sheriff's Deputy got shot and killed during a burglary of His house -
Deputies house is 5 minutes away from mine and on the same main road -

Detective told ne the police are now going full force now so any desk duty is
apparently put on back burner --

Austin TX is not the town it used to be -

@ Taz Pengra

I dont know what part of the East Bay your from. Im from the inner from Antioch, Brentwood, Oakley area. There's a lot of home invasion in this area. Its not drug related at all. Most of the punks whos doing home invasion. Where from not this area at all. They from Oakland, Richmond, SF or Vallejo area.

I have a close friend got rob early morning between 7:15 - 7:45. He just dropped off his wife to work. Garage was open. He was putting back his garbage can to the side yard. Then 3 punks with a gun followed him without knowing at all. Put a gun on his head and they went tru the garage. His little daughter was almost ready for school. Grandma and grandpa was on the kitchen eating breakfast. Put a gun on their faces. Grandpa having heart problem almost had an heart attack. They took all the jewelries, cash, and valuables. They didnt even bother on getting the electronics. They were out in less than 5 min.

Also did you even heard the news in San Ramon very upper neighborhood. Robbers was driving a Maserati got rob houses.

No one is safe now a days CCTV, Alarms, and weapons. What ever you need to protect your family do it.

Sorry to hijack...

Oh wow. This is very unusual that none of them would hurt anyone physically! Perhaps that's why so many, so they wouldn't "have" to, you know, show of force?

All the more reason to buy an automatic... revolver only has 5 bullets.
