    Maybe you’ve seen these guys caught on camera. If you have, the Fresno Police Department would like to know because on Nov. 10, 2017 they were recorded at a home in the area of north Channing Ave. and west Alluvial Ave. in Fresno. The victim, who was home at the time, reported hearing glass breaking and discovered a broken door. Call (559) 498-STOP if you information.
