Please help us stop these men. The truck looks like a Ford Ranger single cab in silver or tan with an attached white tool box and ladder rack. This truck should not be too hard to find!!! This community needs to come together and stop the crimes that are affecting our homes and businesses.

How would random thieves know that there is a laptop, and an iPad to steal? The hair care products are a given, but these always seem like they are either "inside jobs" or sneaky "customers" that come in, scope out the place/items and then have some one else do the dirty work.

Well if the sheriffs were actually patrolling, instead of harrassing innocent people, this might not have happened. Ridiculous!

I think the truck looks like a Dodge Dakota.

'harrassing innocent people' - feeling guilty? LOL
|I agree with #3|

I was stopped at a DUI checkpoint w/o probable cause. I don't drink and therefore wasn't under the influence and consequently wasn't cited. But I was stopped and harassed, interrogated as to where I had been, where I was going etc. etc. etc. I agree with 'terrible' above.

DUI checkpoint? When and where did this occur in Fallbrook? CHP usually does those in the unincorporated areas of the County... did I miss a FVN article on that?

Comment no. 6, you might feel harassed by being required to stop at the checkpoint and feel like the questioning was akin to interrogation, but the questions they ask as to where are you coming from, gong to, ect., are just asked so they can get a person to speak. They don't care what the answers are, and really aren't asking those questions to find out. They are really just listening for slurred speech, confusion, red watery eyes, smelling the air emanating from your mouth for the the smell of an alcoholic beverage, and to watch how you respond to divided attention tests. It's simply the fastest and best method of determining if probable cause exists that would lead a reasonable and prudent person to believe that a crime has been committed (looking for a DUI in this case) to support further testing for DUI. That's all. There's no intent to harass anyone. I've done it, been there, asking those same questions doing DUI enforcement myself. Don't get too worked up over it, unless you feel a particular officer unfairly targeted you for a specific reason, like retribution. That's a whole other animal then. Sometimes cops get lucky during checkpoints and find intoxicated people have vomited on themselves while driving, and have it all running down thier shirt into thier laps! Now, that's a hard one for them to answer up to lol. When they throw up on themselves in front of you while you are asking the questions is even worse. Especially if you're a sympathy puker!

That isn't harassment Comment 6 and it also wasn't interrogation. If you weren't drinking you had nothing to worry about, they may have even saved your life by stopping someone who was intoxicated and getting them off the road. Would you rather have been like that poor woman and her daughter on Hwy 52 who were hit head on by a drunk driver going the wrong way? Too bad they didn't have a sobriety check point there.
Comment Continued : The comment above was written from the same location.

Lol, hahaha no I don't feel guilty for anything, as I have no criminal record whatsoever. I am just sick and tired of the way fallbrook sheriff's deputies treat people, when they are trying to HELP clean up our ghettoes. People who are reporting crimes should not be disrespected and cussed at- by a sheriff deputy who is supposed to take a report. Victims of a violent crime should not be accused of wrongdoing, or told they deserve to be injured. Women should not be pulled over and sexually harrassed- by a sheriff's deputy. Innocent kids should not be treated like they are a "gangbanger," just because they have brown hair and brown eyes. People who falsely report a crime to the sheriff's dept. in an attempt to harrass a former spouse, should be charged for false reporting. Sheriffs' should be pissed and arrest people who waste their time, by falsely reporting a crime. The sheriff's should be patrolling, and watching out for- all the violent and thieving criminals. Crimes happen right in front of them on my street. They are too busy harrassing a person who's not doing anything wrong. When someone asks for help, (after being sexually assaulted right in front of their noses); they are ignored/cursed at/told, "go the f&@k away." To answer your question Pessimistic: The only thing I "feel guilty" about- is being unable to report sheriff's misconduct. And don't tell me to contact the citizen's review board, because they are a joke. They require the reporter (to disclose to the cop they are complaining against) all of their personal info. Incl. family members, friends, work address, boss's name, everything you can think of. The reporter gets no info about the cop. Yeah, no thanks. It sucks that cops in this town are not patrolling. I thought they were supposed to, "serve and protect."

What a crappy surveillance camera. I feel sorry for the businesses that are being robbed/burglarized in Fallbrook. Buying a decent surveillance camera is well worth the expense. A business should never "skimp" on quality security cameras/video surveillance systems. Blurry and grainy pictures (of these suspects,) aren't going to help the cops catch these creeps.

@Terrible: If the deputy sheriff's are actually treating you and your community is this disrespectful way it is your duty to report it to someone. Don't be afraid to do so, this is a free country and it needs to be so for everyone or we don't deserve that title! If there is no one else to tell what is happening speak to your priest or a local minister. Please.
