La Mesa Police responded and conducted a search of the area. Fifty-three-year old, Fernando Sanchez of San Diego was arrested for burglary and booked into jail.

Traffic Information: The La Mesa “Back to the Fifties Car Show” begins officially on Thursday June 19, 2014. As in years past there will be no road closures and all streets are open to the public as normal. La Mesa’s downtown village is an excellent venue for the event and it gets very busy. Therefore, it is imperative that car show participants and all other visitors use caution before, during and after the event. All normal rules of the road and California Vehicle Codes still apply. Cruising is encouraged! Please no chirping of tires, no burn-outs and no motorcycle wheelies. Exhibitionist driving will result in a citation. Please keep all our guests including yourself, safe and ticket free. The La Mesa Police Department will have additional officers working at the event to ensure the safety of everyone. Have a great car show season!

Crime Prevention/Emergency Preparedness: Hide It, Lock It, Or Lose It. Help prevent vehicle burglaries. Take your valuables with you when you park your car, otherwise make sure they are stored out of sight. Always roll up your windows and lock the doors. Items such as laptops, tablet computers, cell phones, vehicle chargers for electronics, tools, purses and wallets, jewelry, and sunglasses are some of the most common items stolen from vehicles. You are your own best crime prevention tool. Remember: Hide it, Lock it or Lose it.
