A brazen vehicle break-in this morning caught the attention of Oakhurst citizens and business owners near the Best Western Inn, located on CA-41 in Oakhurst.   Shortly after 8:00 AM, the suspect described as a white male, possibly in his 20’s, wearing two-toned camouflage shorts and a black sweatshirt, smashed the window of vehicle and then took off running.   Despite an exhaustive foot search through the Oakhurst community, the suspect still managed to slip away.   Anyone who may have information is urged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 559-675-7770.
