Plasma TVs Stolen From San Ysidro Ranch
Monday, June 25 – Three 42” LG Plasma flat screen televisions along with sixteen spools of wire were stolen from the San Ysidro Ranch’s premises. The facility is currently under remodel and therefore many doorways and gates have been left unsecured. The suspects took advantage of this when they entered the Canyon cottages to remove the televisions through open doorways.
The sixteen spools of wire were located and extracted from under a porch which was not viewable to the public. This scenario prompted an employee of the electric company working with the Ranch to suggest that whoever took the wire already knew where it was. Altogether, about $9,920 worth of items were stolen.
