Starting the day early, police arrived at the German-American International School on Elliott Drive around 7:30 a.m. to find that someone had practiced his or her ABCs on the school walls using spray paint and sharpie markers, before absconding with $400. Jaime Loya Maldanado, 20, has been charged in connection with that break-in.
Yet another call took investigators over to the 1300 block of Carlton Avenue shortly after 12:30 p.m. There, an unlocked rear window granted access to someone who pocketed jewelry and cash worth an estimated $16,000, according to police spokeswoman Nicole Acker.
Finally, still another burglary report at 2:10 p.m. brought police to a carport in the 700 block of Roble Avenue, where a cut cable lock mutely testified to the mysterious absence of a $478 bike.
