Workers Stop Attempted Construction Truck Theft

A Rohnert Park man is accused of what police call a brazen attempt to steal a construction truck in the middle of a work day. They say construction workers at a site on Southwest Boulevard stopped 36-year-old Antonio Magana Sandoval and restrained him until police arrived around Noon Friday. But before they noticed him, Sandoval had allegedly used tools in the truck to remove the dashboard, steering column and shifter in a failed effort to start it. It’s not clear how he planned to drive the truck with all of the parts removed.
