Numerous incidents of burglaries at local wineries reported 

Reward offered for information about this crime that leads to arrest

–The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a series of burglaries targeting winery tasting rooms in the Paso Robles and Templeton areas. Over the past couple months, more than 25 tasting rooms have been hit in the north county, with the latest incident occurring a couple days ago. Investigators have determined the suspect breaks into the tasting room and takes a small amount of money from the cash register. It’s estimated the total loss from all the burglaries amounts to a few thousand dollars. No other items are taken and there is no evidence of vandalism.

The incidents have been random in nature, occurring in different areas on different days. But because of the similarities of the crimes, investigators believe at this time, it may be the work of one person. Sheriff’s investigators are working on several leads.

The sheriff’s office is encouraging the public that if they see someone or something suspicious to give the Sheriff’s Office North Station a call at (805) 434-4290. Or you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 549 STOP (549-7867). You can also text your tip to Crime Stoppers by texting “SLOTIPS plus your message” to CRIMES (274637) or submit your tip through the Crime Stoppers web site at “SLOTIPS.ORG”. Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information about this crime that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
