Officer Novell responded to a residence on the 36700 block of Olive St. at 6:50 p.m. regarding a residential burglary. The investigation showed the suspects gained entry into the residence from a rear bathroom window. The suspects took the victim's X-Box, I-Pad, and Sony Play Station. Also taken were two lap top computers. This case is still under investigation.
At 5:15 p.m., ACSO Fire and NPD were dispatched to 35125 Newark Blvd the Bank of the West. A bank employee reported three suspicious boxes in the parking lot just west of the business. ACSO Fire arrived on scene and found one of the boxes open. A check of the box found large chunks of concrete with rebar inside it. The other two boxes were sealed shut with packaging tape. ACSO felt the boxes were suspicious in nature and requested we call the ACSO Bomb Squad to examine the boxes. ACSO Bomb Team Commander Rocky Medeiros arrived on scene and conducted a search of the boxes and found they were all full of broken concrete pieces and nothing else. The boxes were taken into custody and destroyed.
