Police in Northern California track down suspects after rioters stole more than 70 premium cars from a car dealership near San Francisco on Sunday evening.
Carlos Hidalgo, owner of the San Leandro Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership, said that although he blocked the exits as a precaution, the thieves “rammed them.” “It looks like a war zone,” Hidalgo told FOX 2. “It’s terrible.” This is internal terrorism aimed at working people, that’s wrong. ” According to preliminary information, almost all Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcats dealerships, as well as Charger Hellcats, Jeep Wranglers and pickups, were stolen.
“The events in Minneapolis reopened old, gross wounds and called on us to confront social injustice,” Jeff Tudor, head of the San Leandro Police Department, wrote on Facebook. “Peaceful Protestants talked with us.” But those who rob and incite violence in our society are detrimental to all efforts to understand each other. ” Between 20 and 25 cars were found, but some were damaged, while others were broken into pieces. According to the dealership, the company has lost $ 5 million and now plans to hire armed guards. According to SF Gate, on Sunday evening Walmart, See’s Candies, Burlington Coat Factory, Subway and Design Shoe Warehouse were looted in the area.
