Bishop police investigators are looking into the second burglary of a downtown business in less than a week.
According to Sgt. Dave Jepson, Schat.net, located at 174 N. Main St. was burglarized at about 11 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26.
It appears a burglar or burglars entered the electronic store through the rear door in Whitney Alley.
The thief or thieves stole various electronic items, including new XBox 360 game units that retail for between $300 and $450 each, and iPods. The burglar also stole a roll of receipt paper.
The seats were full at Mondayâ€™s meeting of the Bishop City Council as friends, family and current and former colleagues gathered to witness Rick Pucci in action one last time as city administrator.
Pucci, attending his final City Council meeting as an employee of the City of Bishop, has been administrator for 30 years, during which time he has racked up more than 720 City Council meetings and seen two dozen council members come and go through the chambers in City Hall.
The accolades were showered on Pucci from former councilmembers, government officials and friends.
The leaves are starting to change colors and there is a chill in the early morning air â€“ a time of year described by the Coalition of Chambers of Commerce as â€śperfectâ€ť for touring the back roads and out-of-the-way byways of Inyo County by vehicle.
For almost the 10th year, the Coalition is celebrating October as Motor Touring Month in Inyo, and encouraging both residents and visitors to buckle up and do some responsible, on-road exploring.
