A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

Redwood City

Getaway scooter: Security guards at the Target department store, 2485 El Camino Real, phoned police that a known shoplifter had just been taped stealing a stereo and then using a knife to cut the camera cable in the men’s restroom, presumably to conceal the loot being hidden on his person.
