Luis Obispo reported several thefts from their unlocked vehicles. One of the homeowners on Cucaracha

suspects in the video is seen looking into both vehicles in the driveway with the use of a flashlight.
The subject seen looking into the vehicles is described as a male, possibly white, in his 20's with medium
length hair. He is wearing a long sleeve possibly lighter colored zip-up jacket, baggy jeans, white high top
Nike basketball style shoes, and a baseball cap on backwards. A second subject can be seen walking through
