According to police reports, Ptlm. Derrick Palazzo and Sgt. Megan Boulet went to El Mono Auto at about 12:15 p.m. and spoke with owner Cindy Gomez, who said that she had come into work that day and found the front door to the office pried open.
Palazzo reported that Gomez also pointed out graffiti painted on a garage door that read "[expletive] you ho ho."
Gomez told the officers that a grinding tool and polisher for body work were taken, as well as eight car stereos valued at $1,500, a $300 laptop, and a $600 socket set, among other items.
