OPD Needs Help Identifying Individuals and Vehicles in Connection to a Commercial Burglary
The Oakland Police Department (OPD) is releasing these photographs and video in hopes the community can help identify the individuals in connection with a commercial burglary. The incident occurred on December 19, 2022, just after 4:15 AM in the 3200 block of Martin Luther King Way.
Surveillance video captures a 1990’s 4-door, black or dark green Toyota Camry or similar model ramming into a business, causing damage to a brick wall and gate. The vehicle then flees the area.
Seconds later, a possibly 2004 sliver or beige Ford Explorer XLS reverses into the front entrance of the business.
Surveillance footage shows three individuals wearing all-black clothing using a chain attached to the Ford Explorer to pry open the front security gate. The individuals, one armed with a handgun, enter the business. The individuals later left the area in the vehicle with unknown items in an unknown direction.
If you recognize these individuals or vehicles, please contact the Oakland Police Department Robbery Unit at (510) 238-3426 or the TIP LINE at (510) 238-3951.
