Now day’s people are struggling from pay check to pay check. Every little dollar counts and I know people don’t have money to give away. There are some unscrupulous businesses out there taking peoples hard earned money and not thinking twice about it. American Furniture in Gilroy happens to be one of those businesses. The owner Peter Hung Truong of American Furniture at 8797 San Ysidro Road, next to Gold's Gym in Gilroy allegedly scammed customers out of their money. Customers would put down hundreds sometimes thousands on furniture or pay for it out right. He would promise delivery but the customers would not get their furniture. The Gilroy Police Department received three formal complaints about paying for items they never received so a fraud investigation against the owner Peter Hung Truong was opened. American Furniture had an official eviction notice was posted on the door by the Santa Clara County Sheriff's on May 23, 2013. Peter Hung Truong continued to do business despite the eviction notice. What I don’t understand if he had an eviction notice on the door didn’t the customer see it? The authorities are looking for Peter Hung Truong if you have any tips about American Furniture or Peter Truong; call the Gilroy Police Department at (408) 846-0350.

When I heard on the news that Darla Dominguez of San Martin, California was arrested on suspicion for selling some items she stole from a storage locker in Morgan Hill California at a garage sale in San Martin. I got a good laugh! I thought how dumb and what the heck was she smoking. On June 11, 2013 around 8 p.m. Darla broke in this storage locker at 18025 Monterey Road in Morgan Hill, taking more than $26,000 worth of stuff. Investigators went to Darla’s home in San Martin the next town over searched it and found multiple items taken from the locker. They also found a trailer which had been reported stolen in a separate case. I think she wanted to get caught because to sell something you stole at a garage sale has to be one of the stupidest things never. Somebody probably saw something she was selling thought it was stolen and called the authorities. You never know who will show up at a garage sells.
