Car broken into at Berkeley Toll Plaza?

Postby thedavidson » Thu Sep 05, 2013 8:23 am

Hey all,

I was leaving the toll plaza in Berkeley yesterday after kiting, around 5:45, and saw some backpacks and a kitebag in the bushes by the freeway on-ramp. 2 backpacks and a 7m kite. Most likely they were stolen from somebody's car. I grabbed them but had to run to night class in SF.

If this stuff is yours just shoot me a message telling me what kind of kite it is and we can figure out how to get this stuff to you. I live in SF but kite in the east bay pretty regularly.

Best,

Eric

Good on ya, Eric! Hope this stuff finds it's owner.

I'm in the East Bay and if it helps in any way, I'm happy to grab the stuff from you and help it get back. Keep me posted...

Yep. Window was smashed on his car. There were about 10 cars there at the time too. 4-5 kiters on the water and another 5 or so people on the beach. Guess we need to be careful not to leave anything visible out there.
