On Friday, a gas station manager in Oakland expressed deep frustration and anger after his business was ransacked overnight, compounded by what he described as a lack of police response despite his call for help.

The incident occurred at The 76 Station on Hegenberger Road, near Interstate 880, not far from the airport. Around 4:30 a.m., a crowd from a nearby sideshow broke into the station and began looting.

According to station manager Sam Mardaie, approximately 80 to 100 individuals participated in the vandalism. They reportedly became agitated because they were only offered service through the station’s windows, which was standard practice during the late hours.

Mardaie estimates the damages and losses exceed $100,000.

When questioned about the delay in police response, Oakland police initially categorized the incident as a Priority 2 burglary due to the absence of suspects at the scene. The manager was advised to file a report using online crime reporting.

Subsequently, video evidence highlighting the scale and specifics of the incident, including the large number of perpetrators, was provided to OPD. This prompted an immediate upgrade of the incident to Priority 1 status, leading to police dispatching an officer to the scene.

This incident adds to a string of challenges along the Hegenberger corridor in Oakland.

El viernes, el gerente de una gasolinera en Oakland expresó su profunda frustración y enojo después de que su negocio fuera saqueado durante la noche, agravado por lo que describió como una falta de respuesta policial a pesar de su llamado de ayuda.

El incidente ocurrió en la estación 76 en Hegenberger Road, cerca de la Interestatal 880, no lejos del aeropuerto. Alrededor de las 4:30 a. m., una multitud de un espectáculo cercano irrumpió en la estación y comenzó a saquear.

Según el director de la estación, Sam Mardaie, aproximadamente entre 80 y 100 personas participaron en el vandalismo. Según los informes, se agitaron porque sólo les ofrecieron servicio a través de las ventanas de la estación, lo cual era una práctica habitual durante las últimas horas.

Mardaie estima que los daños y pérdidas superan los 100.000 dólares.

Cuando se le preguntó sobre la demora en la respuesta policial, la policía de Oakland inicialmente categorizó el incidente como un robo de Prioridad 2 debido a la ausencia de sospechosos en el lugar. Se recomendó al gerente que presentara una denuncia mediante informes de delitos en línea.

Posteriormente, se proporcionó a la OPD pruebas en vídeo que destacaban la escala y los detalles del incidente, incluido el gran número de perpetradores. Esto provocó que el incidente se elevara inmediatamente al estado de Prioridad 1, lo que llevó a que la policía enviara un oficial al lugar.

Este incidente se suma a una serie de desafíos a lo largo del corredor Hegenberger en Oakland.
