Galarza plumbing work truck stolen

We are devastated. Everything to run our family-owned business is gone. Here’s what happened…

We are the owners of Galarza Plumbing. Our truck was stolen from in front of a customer’s home in Paramount, CA. Their ring cam captured the theft. Two cars pulled up in what looked to be an organized theft ring, broke into our work truck, hotwired it, and drove off. Police were immediately notified, but the officer reminded us that even if the truck is recovered the tools are almost never found. We have lost $60,000 worth of equipment and can’t work.

My husband spent the past twenty years working hard and saving to start his own a business. We’re a one truck, one man, one job at a time plumbing company - a hard-working family who lives in the San Fernando Valley with two beautiful sons. We are grateful for our many loyal customers, and proud to be a part of the Los Angeles business community. Our family volunteers at Children’s Hospital and helps other families with financial hardships. We never expected to one day be the family asking for help.

We are reaching out to family, friends and the community to please help if you can with this financial challenge we face to get our business running again.

UPDATE - LA’s 98.7 radio hosts “Booker and Stryker” have been amazing, putting us live on air to get the word out that we desperately need assistance. We truly appreciate their kindness and support in this difficult time.
