PICO RIVERA – Deputies are seeking the public’s help in identifying two teenage boys caught on a surveillance video breaking into a skate store three times since July. The boys appear to be 14 to 16 years old and dress in a gothic-mod style, Sgt. Art Chavez of the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station said Thursday. “I’m sure that they are local because it’s a specialty shop, and they’re familiar with it,” Chavez said. “We just want a little help from the public in identifying these individuals.” The burglars broke in to At The Beach store at the Pico Rivera Town Center, 8762 Washington Blvd. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possibleThey used rocks and a baseball bat to smash the glass front doors early on the mornings of July 14, Aug. 16 and Aug. 24, Chavez said. They grabbed clothing, skateboards and other merchandise inside the store, he said. Store owner Fred Anton said the three burglaries have cost him about $4,500 in lost merchandise, and $2,650 in repairs to his glass doors. He said he is also now worried that his insurance company will cancel his policy or raise his rates because of the claims. The Town Center shopping area has no security guard at night, so Anton said he has been bringing in his own security to prevent future burglaries. last_img
