PALMDALE – At least six vehicles parked at a Palmdale Park and Ride station were broken into and burglarized early Saturday morning, authorities said.
The break-ins were reported around 3:12 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at 434 W. Avenue S, according to Lt. Glenn Brandon of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Palmdale station.
Some of the owners who were getting to the park and ride lot from work in a ride share van arrived to find their vehicles ransacked and some of their property taken, according to a videographer at the scene.
The estimated value of the stolen property was not immediately available.
Brandon said there was no suspect information and he didn’t believe there were any video cameras in the area.
A man at the scene who did not want to be identified told news photographers he saw “some youngsters” using paintball guns and hammers to vandalize vehicles at the park and ride lot, and he was able to stop them and run them off. The suspects fled the scene in a silver Chevy Cobalt, the witness said. His story could not be confirmed with sheriff’s detectives at the scene.
Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station at 661-272-2400.
