The Kern County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in identifying suspects wanted for burglary. On January 25th, 2013 at about 4:30 am several suspects used a vehicle to crash through an access gate at Abate-a-Weed located at 9411 Rosedale Hwy. in Bakersfield. After breaking through the access gate, the suspects broke into the showroom area of the business. The suspects removed approximately 30 pieces of yard care equipment including chain saws, gas blowers, and rotary trimmers.
Security surveillance captured one of the suspects. The above photographic image depicts that suspect, who appears to be a black male adult with a stocky build wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, white t-shirt, and dark pants.
