San Leandro Police Arrest Pair For Video Heist

Two men, one from Union City and the other from Alameda, have been charged with attempting to steal video equipment from a commercial van on Doolittle Drive.


Two men were arrested early Sunday morning for allegedly breaking into a commercial van at 14266 Doolittle Drive to steal video equipment, police say.

The van belonged to North American Video Corp., a vendor of video equipment and supplies according to YellowPages.com.

According to a police report, the incident began at 5:35 am when officers responded to an audible car alarm.

Police say that suspects Christopher Miller, 37, of Union City, and Brian Belger, 34, of Alameda, were found inside a van whose window had been smashed in.

Police say they caught the two men removing video equipment from the van. Miller and Belger were arrested for auto burglary and transported to jail.

These can't be the right guys because the majority of posters here on the Patch tell me all crime in San Leandro is committed by african american oakland residents. Or poor working people living in subsidized housing.

Mike, spot on observation on a very depressing topic. I suspect that crime is committed in Oakland by non-Oakland residents at a very high rate. Consider the demographics of the Occupy movement and what it became in Oakland as compared to other neighboring cities. Why not Occupy Marin, Carmel, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Jose, Los Altos, or even San Leandro, for that matter?

A very good job for the police department , now if only the courts would get smart and have the two pay for everything they took and for everything in the van . after all they broke in so have them pay for it all and for repairs on the van and give each two years in jail or some prison time and what ever else the police has on them .
