Mendota P.D. searching for clues in burglary and arson

Posted by wlpo on September 9, 2016

Your help is needed in finding a thief in Mendota.

Back on Tuesday night, the Mendota Police Department says a white or Hispanic man burglarized Holland and Sons in Mendota.  He’s accused of stealing a couple blowers, two cement saws and a couple chain saws.  The thief was driving a mid-sized, dark colored 4-door passenger car.

Tips are also being taken about who is behind a car fire on the east side of Mendota that is considered arson. Just after 12:30 Tuesday morning, police and firefighters were called about a car fire in the 400 block of 8th Street, not far from Lincoln Elementary School.  Investigators think the car was intentionally set on fire.

If you know who committed the crimes, call Mendota Crime Stoppers at 538-7777.  You could get a reward of up to a thousand dollars.
