Police are investigating nine burglaries at a Public Storage facility in Fremont, Calif. A victim of the burglaries told KTVU thieves had cut the lock on her unit and replaced it with another.
Cherlisa Lugo said everything in her unit was taken, including her son’s Playstation 3. Her family had recently become homeless and rented the unit to store their belongings. She discovered the theft last Friday. Lugo then contacted the KTVU after hearing about a burglary ring that targeted self-storage facilities in the San Francisco area.
Fremont police are checking video surveillance from nearby properties for clues, and said they will confer with San Francisco police to see if there are any similarities surrounding the break-ins.
