String of burglaries in Lindsay

Local News

The southern corner of Lindsay has been hit by thieves seven times in the past couple of months. 

Tulare County Sheriff Sergeant, Bobby Rader, says he has had enough.

“We are not happy that this happened six or seven times,” says Rader. “We want to identify these folks and complete our investigations.”

He says they installed surveillance cameras in the areas that have been hit recently.

“In that amount of time we have captured several pictures of several subjects,” says Rader. “We are asking the public’s help trying to identify them.”

Businesses nearby say this area has been a target the past couple of years.

Lauri Nortridge works across the street from where the recent burglaries took place. She says her work has fallen victim of being burglarized in the past.

“There was a time when we were being robbed a lot,” says Nortridge.

Tulare County Sheriff Department says the 600 block of East Citrus street has been burglarized twice in one month. 

Rader says thieves have stole approximately 5 thousand dollars worth of electronics from the owner of that location.

“So, it’s important that we identify them as soon as possible,” says Rader. “So, we can clean that area up and put a stop to the thefts and the trespassing.”

If you know anything about these crimes you are asked to reach out to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department tip line at (559) 725-4194. Or by e-mail tcso@tipnow.com.
