Thieves Hit Hardware Store

Sunday morning's break-in marks the second in two weeks for Roadside Lumber and Hardware.

Detectives from the Lost Hills Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are investigating a break-in at Roadside Lumber and Hardware on the 29000 block of Roadside Drive in Agoura Hills that took place at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities at the station confirmed the break-in and said they were able to recover some construction equipment, but no suspects are in custody and declined to give more details while the investigation is under way.

Residents in the area reported hearing helicopters circling above the business and police giving directions over a loud speaker.

According to Roadside's general manager, Owen Nostrant, this event comes two weeks after another burglary at the store. Nostrant said the store lost approximately $10,000 in product and damages in the earlier break-in.

Perhaps if the lost hills sheriffs weren't so busy roaming our neighborhoods looking for expired registration plates our businesses would be better protected.

Isn't that reason you live in Agoura? The fact the sheriffs have time to roam the streets looking for expired registrations..... crime is so rare and you resent the sheriffs????

If maybe the deputies were not busy protecting the dead end of Thousand Oaks Blvd. near Agoura High School from tumbleweeds this crime and others would be prevented.

There are drug pushers selling heroin to our high school students and our middle school kids can get any amount of alcohol or pot that they want.. I have no problem with enforcement of registration laws during a traffic stops..but investigating parked cars on quiet residential streets and driveways should be a low priority at best. Parking empty black and whites in commercial shopping lots seems to be the extent of the sheriffs protection. Too many stories of petty harassment from too many residents for lost hills sheriffs not to receive some criticism.
