Since September, four San Leandro stores have been robbed at gunpoint while patrons shopped.
The first was Safeway.
Three of these stickups — at Togo's, WalMart and Home Depot — have occurred over the last 30 days, all at the Westgate Shopping Center.
Patch asked San Leandro Police Department spokesman Lt. Randy Brandt what might explain this spate of robberies.
Hear what he has to say.
