"FREMONT _ Perhaps it was another one of Jabba The Hut's botched criminal plans. A large 5-foot tall safe was dropped in the Glenmoor neighborhood this morning, leaving nearly 100 collectible Star Wars toys strewn along the street, Detective Bill Veteran said.
Authorities this morning have no idea how the safe got to Lombard Street, or who it belongs to, said the detective, the department's spokesman.
"We have not had any reports of missing safes,'' he said.
Police were dispatched to Gable Drive about 1:30 a.m. after a man in his garage reported hearing a large bang outside.
When he went to investigate, he found the damaged safe lying in the street, and several boxes of action figures strewn about.
"The safe had been pried open and there were six boxes of toys, each containing 15 Star Wars action figures,'' Veteran said.
Because the safe appeared to have been forced open, authorities believe there may have been other valuables inside.
Anyone with information may call police at (510) 790-6900."
I just can't believe the police got to the figures before the collectors :)
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
