Over the weekend Madera police received two reports of tailgate thefts and have asked citizens to keep an eye out for suspicious activity as they continue to investigate.
Within 20 minutes of each other starting around 10 p.m. Saturday, two 2005 Toyota Tacoma truck owners called the Madera Police Department to report the thefts. One theft happened in the 200 block of Madrid Lane and the other tailgate was reported stolen in the 2600 block of Desert Ranch Way, police said.
There were “very few details known at this time” but police asked citizens to report any suspicious people on their property or in their neighborhoods.
They also asked residents to make sure outside lighting was functioning to keep properties lit during evening hours...
