Burglars hit three Menlo homes in three days

by Sandy Brundage

A daytime burglar reportedly crept into a home in the 800 block of Hamilton Avenue through an unlocked back window on Monday, May 9, and left with $2,800 of ill-gotten gains, namely, a 40-inch flatscreen television and a laptop.

A home on the 1400 block of Hill Avenue suffered similar bad luck on Tuesday, May 10, but not as much as the alleged burglars. After a neighbor spotted the duo, Nathaniel Kinsey, 20, of Stockton, was arrested by police along with a teenage accomplice for reportedly stealing $6,400 worth of items that inexplicably included the pink slip to a car, along with earrings, checks, photos, a hard drive, speakers, and an iPod.

Wednesday, May 11, brought a double-header. An open bathroom window in the 1100 block of Willow Road provided access to another daytime burglar, but not much by the way of stolen property — a DVD player worth about $30 was the sole item missing.

Also reported to police on Wednesday, a resident of the same street realized that on May 4 someone walked in through the front door and out with a folder containing a Bible, photos, passport, and $4,760 cash.
