Thieves smashed windows and made off with valuables in two vehicle burglaries on Tuesday, June 18: a MacBook Pro, no value given, stolen from a vehicle parked in the 1800 block of El Camino Real; and a computer, cell phone, $40 in cash and personal items (a loss totaling $1,800) taken from a vehicle parked in the 1600 block of Marsh Road.
Two bicycles were reported stolen — one with a value of $300, taken from an unlocked storage container on Coleman Avenue, and another worth $6,000, taken from a garage on Lemon Street. Another bike was stolen from an open garage on Middlefield Road, but police had no information on its value.
Someone broke into a laundry room in the 400 block of Oak Grove Avenue and stole the coin-collection containers from coin-operated washing machines, and broke into a maintenance room and stole two saws. The losses amounted to $665, including $20 in coins, police said.
About $20 in coins were also reported stolen from a home on Hollyburne Avenue on June 19, along with a Playstation video game console with a value of $300 after someone entered the house through an unlocked bedroom window.
A backpack containing work papers, laptop computers and knee pads went missing from the trunk of a vehicle parked in the 300 block of Hedge Road, police said. The losses add up to $690.
In two burglaries, one commercial and one residential, the victims reported signs of break-ins but that was all. At Honeycombers, a lice-treatment facility at 441 El Camino Real, there were pry marks on a door and the door's handle was missing, police said. And at a residence on Glenwood Avenue, thieves broke into four storage containers but took nothing, police said.
