Kids with Bolt Cutters Spotted at Silverwood Elementary School in Concord

December 27, 2013 15:57 pm · 21 comments

Two white male juveniles with bolt cutters were spotted just before 4pm on the campus of Silverwood Elementary School on Claycord Ave. in Concord, according to a witness.

The police were called.

The witness says the kids were last seen running down the dirt walking path across from school.

If you’re in the area, keep your eyes out and be sure to call the police if you see anything suspicious.

They asked Santa for bolt cutters?

There is nothing illegal about running down a dirt path with bolt cutters. But if bolts have been cut and perhaps something damaged or stolen, then those kids (along with the parents) should have to explain their actions.

The head should read “Juvenile Criminals with bolt cutters–”

Idiots. Hopefully they didn’t get into anything at the school

5 @Howard Mullins, #2---I believe bolt cutters are considered burglary tools December 27, 2013 at 4:45 PM

And the simple fact they took off running would raise suspicions as to their actions.

IMO, all public elementary, middle, and high schools should have security cameras to discourage, if not prevent, vandalism, burglaries, physical fights, and yes, food fights.

Fact it was posted on Claycord lets kids know, people are watching not only schools but in neighborhoods as well.
Thank You Mr. Mayor for posting this, great deterrence.

bolt cutters are considered burglary tools if you are caught with them in the correct circumstances. Kids wandering around carrying a pair of bolt cutters would probably be sufficient to warrant a trip to jail.

It sometimes is very informative to read previous posts in a thread. Then again, sometimes not, as in the case of all the braggarts posting their silliness about their fireplaces to be used on Spare The Air days.

Probably the children of the BAAQMD-haters who love to tell us how they’re proud to break the law. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of low class scum like that in Concord.

14 And another rip-off December 27, 2013 at 11:09 PM

@ db shoes in the Willows this afternoon. Clean cut, thin white male, mid to late 20′s left the store with the stolen shoes on his feet. From what I could tell he was not caught.

I like the way you insult the baaqmd and the city of concord in one short post that has nothing to do with this topic. It’s okay if you don’t want clean air, and you don’t like concord. Just be more straightforward about it. People will appreciate your honesty more if you’re direct.

17 Cici December 28, 2013 at 11:58 AM

TK – I didn’t insult the BAAQMD. Read any of the Spare the Air threads. There are many adults who post there bragging about how they are going to break the law by lighting a fire and they are proud to do it. If so many adults in our community brag about breaking laws they don’t like, why would anyone be surprised that their children have no respect for the law either? That’s what they’ve taught their children. Yes, if you raise your children to disobey the law, you are low class scum in my book. Yes, the threads are related because parents are teaching their children it is OK to break the law if you want to.

@Cici; I totally got it the first time! I’m a person who suffers when the particulate matter in our air is high, I can attest to the downright anarchical comments on the SPA announcements. The apple generally doesn’t fall far from the tree.

I’ve raised my kids to question authority. And yes, that means they sometimes question my authority, too. I’m proud that they can think for themselves, rather than blindly obeying every time they’re to do or not do something, like some of you do.

20 Silva December 28, 2013 at 7:06 PM

Do you distinguish between questioning authority and breaking the law?

Agree #21! Believe Nothing and Question Everything!
