Police Release Carjacker Suspect's Photo

Images were captured at ATM after two suspects carjacked a woman from a Shadelands parking lot the night of Nov. 7.

Walnut Creek police Tuesday released bank ATM photos of a carjacking suspect who went by the name "Aubrey" in a Nov. 7 carjacking of a woman from Walnut Creek.

The woman was tied up and later dumped off in the Oakland hills. "The victim has recovered from most of her injuries and is doing well," the WCPD reported in a Tuesday press release.

Police released three ATM photos of "Aubrey." The second suspect went by "David." "It is important to stress we do not know if these are the suspects' actual names," police stated.

Two men kidnapped a woman from a parking lot at the Business Center at Shadelands at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7 and tried to force her to take money from her bank account. Later they drove her to a remote spot in the Oakland hills and released her, still tied up. The woman freed herself and called police.

The suspects drove a small, dark-colored pickup truck with a loud muffler, possibly a Toyota.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Walnut Creek police at (925) 256-3577.

I will agree with Jim that WC kids deserve the same level of safety that Danville kids enjoy. I would never argue against that. My respect for law enforcement is very high. I have spoken to quite a few rank and file and also to Chief Gates (yes THAT Chief Gates)on the matter of DARE (he was not around for Character Counts) and he was unable to determine if it worked but did continue to back it. My argument here is kids that feel they have a good future are less likely to fall into drugs. Also keeping the engaged is what we should look at as well as education. I am all for the police having a relationship with the kids. The police are the good guys but question how much good these programs do.

Ygnacio Valley Road is like driving in the Indy 500 sometimes. But I am reminded of all the fatalities that have occurred along that road and I keep it to exactly the legal limit! You know you may get there a few minutes quicker but that is never worth injuring or killing another human being! And yes lately no cops insight writing tickets.

Walnut Creek schools are wonderful! We moved to Walnut Creek for the schools. As an educator in SRVUSD, it has been my observation that the school systems are both excellent just different in size. As far as speeding and the party scene in Walnut Creek, some thing needs to be done. Truly I find it appalling, WC is not a college town. There are many establishments that folks from all over the Bay Area enjoy patronizing, but when downtown turns into a frat party on the weekends, we are more likely to head to Danville. The political heads in the city need to do some thing about this. It is impacting everything including the value of our homes.

The lowlife hip hop crowd from Oakland who travel YVR to get to their cousins in Pittsburg and Antioch thing is it easy pickens from white bread Walnut Creek. The gangsta thugs take advantage of Walnut Creek's polite and nice society and pisses all over it.

DARE is a liberal failure. How much did they waste, 500 million? Everyone knows DARE is a complete failure.
