Lemon Grove Woman Fears for Safety After Posting Surveillance Video of Theft

San Diego Police will investigate online threats received from an East County woman who says she’s being retaliated after posting surveillance video of a man stealing items from inside her car.

The Lemon Grove woman, who asked to be identified only as Shariny, said the response from her post was overwhelmingly positive but for a few very concerning comments.

“It’s scary to know that he's out there,” she told NBC 7 Saturday.

She’s referring to the man captured on surveillance video getting into Shariny’s unlocked car, stealing a stroller and several other small items and walking off camera.

“It's a violation to hardworking people,” she said.

So Shariny posted the video to an East County group page on Facebook and got a huge response. She says several people turned over valuable information to investigating officers.

But among the posts were some disturbing comments including a picture demanding she “stop snitching.”

“It's scary because you never know when you're in danger,” Shariny said.

Cameras are still up and running around Shariny's home with added motion sensor lights.

She has also spent time away from home and gotten rid of the car.

She said she’s been told by San Diego Police that they will pick up their investigation on Monday.

Those comments posted have since been deleted from the East County group’s Facebook page.
