On March 30, 2023, the Vallejo Police Department received a call that a male was trying to break into a U-Haul trailer on the 1500 block of Fairgrounds Dr.
When our officers arrived, they observed a male standing near the U-Haul trailer. Our officers detained the male because he matched the description provided to our dispatch.
Our officers saw that the U-Haul trailer's lock was missing and that multiple boxes inside were partially opened.
The victim contacted our officers at the scene. The victim provided proof that he was renting the U-Haul and confirmed that the U-Haul was supposed to be secured with a deadbolt. The victim also observed some of his belongings near the trailer on the ground.
A nearby business provided our officers with surveillance footage of the detained male breaking into the trailer. The male was arrested and booked into the local jail.
