After truck crashed through building, son shot at, vans stolen longtime business owner is looking to move anywhere but Oakland

Bob Tuck, whose family business has operated in Oakland for more than 100 years, said he had recently begun looking at other East Bay cities where he might move the operation: San Leandro, Hayward, Berkeley, "anywhere but Oakland."

The last year and a half had been particularly difficult, he said.

"I’ve had my wife in the building when people crashed a car through the front door. She was able to escape out the back, fortunately, unharmed," Tuck said. "I had my son shot at 14th and Webster, a year ago November. Our employees are having their vans stolen out from underneath them while working at homes in Oakland."

The company was able to track one of its stolen vans up to Golf Links Road where the culprits drew guns on employees who tried to get it back.
