Sacramento Lobbying Reported Burglaries, Nonprofit Offices

Burglars broke into more than a dozen offices of lobbying companies, nonprofits and a union within a block of the State Capitol last week and stole computers and files containing identity information, it was reported on Tuesday.

Thefts discovered Thursday morning at the 10-story Forum Building are still under investigation, police told the Sacramento Bee.

Rubicon Property Management, the property manager, said in an email to tenants on Monday that investigators had collected office fingerprints and the company would install more cameras and provide round-the-clock security guards, said the Bee.

The Bee said affected tenants included the California Federation of Teachers; strategic advisers in California; Reeb; EdVoice; California Association for Adult Day Services; California Association of Air Pollution Control Officers; the California Association of Councils of Governments; the California Solar and Storage Association; Hispanic League of Colleges and Universities; Corbin & Kaiser; the Planning and Conservation League and Houston Magnani and Associates.

Corbin & Kaiser CEO Samantha Corbin said the thieves broke door handles, locks and door frames and stole new computer equipment, banking and routing information, as well as information about the employee payrolls, such as Social Security numbers, in filing cabinets.

Tenants say the run down K Street neighborhood contributes to crime.

Sacramento executives should take action to clean up downtown, said Ron Kingston, president of California Strategic Advisors.

Kingston said officials should promise tenants that “we’re going to put resources into cleaning the area, making it safe and secure again, which will make this a Sacramento gem.”
