Police did not say what was taken, but the surveillance video showed that the suspect was a white bearded man who all wore black clothes and a black hat. No arrests have been made and police say they do not know how the burglar got into the pantry.
With so many industries hard hit by the coronavirus outbreak shutdown, thousands have waited in long lines – even in the rain – to source groceries from local pantries across southern California.
