Police are searching for two men who they believe stole from a car and a home before stealing a truck in Fullerton early Saturday.
Fullerton police said one of the men was seen trying to open car doors in the 3000 block of Greenview Place around 5:30 a.m., and stole tools and other personal items from an unlocked car.
"Around the same time," someone broke into a garage of a home located in the 2700 block of Medford Place and stole a gun safe that contained multiple firearms, Fullerton police said in a statement.
Just after the garage was burglarized, a truck was stolen from a home in the same block of Medford Place. Police noted they found items from the back of the stolen truck near the resident's home later on Saturday.
