Burglar Wakes Baby in Hotel Room Raid: A burglar entered the local hotel room of Mr. and Mrs. O. E. Sharbonneay early this morning and stole a wallet and $125 in currency, according to police.
The couple told police that their 3-year-old daughter told them when they awoke this morning that "a man came in and took your money."
The burglar apparently broke into the room, which was locked with a faulty Yale lock, between 5 and 6 a.m. and took $10 from Mr. Sharbonneay's wallet which was in his pants pocket, and stole his wife's wallet containing $115, according to detective Ed Wall, who made the investigation.
DON'T FORGET TO PICK UP YOUR CHIPS FOR KIDS GIFT
TBC Media and the CHP is partnering for another year for the annual CHiPs for Kids toy drive, but we need your help to make the drive happen.
Since you are starting your holiday shopping, we thought it would be the perfect time to remind you that we are looking for unwrapped new gifts for kids between the ages of zero to 16.
Previously, the community has donated toys of all kinds, bikes for all ages, make up sets, electronics, sports equipment, curling irons and more.
You can bring your unwrapped gift to TBC parking lot, on the corner of 18th and H streets, from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 6. And if you miss the drive, you can drop off your gift at The Californian, 1707 Eye St.
Toys collected from the drive will benefit local children. The CHP has partnered with local organizations and businesses to bring joy to less fortunate kids of Kern County this holiday season.
"Everyone on the trail kept saying 'keep going, keep going.' You don't get that at other marathons."
— Samantha Hill, a half-marathon runner, at the Bakersfield Marathon, referring to the community enthusiasm at Sunday's event.
