BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Law enforcement are investigating a truck theft pursuing an alleged dislike criminal offense in Southwest Bakersfield.
A male identifying himself as Jesus Sanders states he’s lived in a neighborhood off Akers and Wilson streets on Colleen Avenue for five a long time. He suggests vandals targeted his property Thursday right after neighbors explained to him they want him and his household absent.
“My residence is spray painted. My truck has the N-phrase spray painted all on it.” Sanders advised 17 News Saturday. “I’m like, ‘Who would do something like this?”
A image of the trailer with the racist slur was posted to social media, and law enforcement claimed, Sanders advised them the truck was stolen the up coming day. Sanders mentioned he fears for his protection.
“They came again and busted the home windows out and stole the truck and the trailer. And it was sitting suitable throughout the road there. Occur out. Glass all on the ground. Truck long gone, all the things gone.”
On Saturday night time, the Bakersfield Law enforcement Department explained the vandalism to the dwelling and truck trailer was not described to them, but early Saturday morning took a report of the truck and trailer getting stolen from the property.
Law enforcement claimed a 3rd party alerted them to the vandalism at the property and the racial slur to the trailer. Officers returned to the residence Saturday afternoon and explained the home was a short while ago vandalized but the injury did not incorporate racial slurs.
The investigation is ongoing. Everyone with information and facts on the alleged vandalism or vehicle theft is asked to get in touch with Bakersfield law enforcement at 661-327-7111.
