For the fourth time in fewer than three weeks, a Downtown Lodi business was burglarized. The burglary took place Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

To add to matters, Sinaloa Cafe had been broken into just hours earlier and the owner had secured the doors, according to Lodi police.

The 43 N. Sacramento St. business was burglarized Nov. 15, and again on Tuesday. Then at 11 p.m. Wednesday someone broke in through the front door.

The owner did his best to secure the wooden doors at that late hour, Officer Jimmy Pendergast said.

Hours later, at 8:16 a.m., another business owner found the doors again broken.

The culprits had apparently smashed them until they gave way.

This time, they stole beer, and police were following up reports that two males may have tried to sell the beer, Pendergast said.

Darryl Clare honored for his involvement, leadership

Darryl Clare received a California State Assembly Resolution recognizing him for his leadership on the Galt City Council and his work on a variety of regional governmental boards.

Outgoing 15th District Assemblyman Guy Houston presented Clare with the award.

"I was completely shocked," Clare said. "It was nice coming from someone I respect."

Clare is on the board of directors for the Sacramento Area Council of Government and has served as the head of its transportation sub-committee. He also is on the board of directors for the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District and the San Joaquin Valley Rail Committee.

He previously has served on the Sacramento Transportation Authority and has been president of the Central Valley Division of the League of California Cities.
