On 11/12/2017, at 07:01 PM, two unknown male suspects forced entry into an electrical closet attached to a business in the 1100 block of Newbury Rd, Thousand Oaks.  The suspects removed numerous electrical breakers from a panel causing over $10,000 in lost property and damages.  The suspects were captured on video surveillance and appear to be driving a newer, large, crew cab pickup truck.
