Police are searching for an unknown suspect who stole more than $125,000 worth of equipment – including drones – from San Diego Gas & Electric, digging underneath a fence to gain access to the SDG&E complex.
The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said Friday that the drones were stolen at around 3:30 a.m. on Aug. 2 from the SDG&E complex located at 9060 Friars Rd. in Mission Valley.
Investigators said the complex is fenced, but the suspect was able to get in by digging underneath the fence. Once inside, the suspect gained access into SDG&E’s Telecom building. From there, the suspect nabbed several drones and related equipment.
The loss was estimated at more than $125,000, SDPD investigators said.
Photos of the drones and accessories that were stolen were released Friday. Anyone with information on the stole items or the suspect can call SDPD’s Eastern Division at (858) 495-7900 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
