Seniors Being Targeted Lottery Scam

December 3, 2011

This is very scary and could happen to any of our family members or friends. Please take the time to talk to your seniors that are close to you. On December 1, in the middle of the afternoon at the San Carlos Trader Joe’s,  a woman in her 70’s was returning to her vehicle after shopping at Trader Joe’s in San Carlos.   She was approached by two Hispanic males who offered to let her take part in a large draw from a winning lottery ticket if she would give them some good faith money.  Although hesitant, the lady was coerced into the vehicle driven by both suspects and taken to her home in Redwood City.  The victim went into her home and retrieved a large amount of cash and gave it to the suspects.  She was  then driven to the corner of El Camino Real & Madison Ave. in Redwood City where she was dropped off and the suspects drove away.   The victim called her daughter to pick her up and told her what happened.  They then reported the crime to the Sheriff’s Office.  
The suspects are described as follows:  
#1 – Hispanic male 60-70 years old, 5’5”-5’7” tall, stocky build, wearing glasses  
#2 – Hispanic male 20-25 years old, 6’0”-6’4” tall, thin build, short black hair  
Suspect vehicle – White full size newer model van with a sliding door and windows that wrap around the entire vehicle.  
The Sheriff’s Office would like to make families aware of this type of crime that frequently targets elders.

Families are encouraged to talk to their seniors about these types of predators and the warning signs that they are being victimized.

PG&E Completes Review of Gas Line in San Carlos; Community Meeting Upcoming
Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) On Tuesday, October 26th, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) announced that it has completed its investigation of the 105-foot segment of high-pressure gas transmission line located on Brittan Avenue in the vicinity of El Camino Real in San Carlos. 

The segment had been ranked on PG&E’s top 100 highest risk gas transmission pipelines because of engineering concerns about the materials used for construction. 

PG&E stated that they have completed their investigation and resolved their concerns.  The segment has been removed from PG&E’s top 100 highest risk gas pipelines list.

The City’s Public Works Department is now planning a community meeting with PG&E to be held in mid-November to answer resident questions and concerns.  More details on the community meeting will be announced once the meeting has been finalized.
