Lafayette police are asking homeowners along Happy Valley Road, North or South Peardale Drive and Leroy Way to review their home camera systems or use old-fashioned memory power to come up with any information that might lead them to the thief or thieves who ransacked a home on Leroy Friday afternoon.
As in past burglaries chronicled here, the perpetrators of Friday’s thievery worked swiftly – striking a home in the 3900 block of Leroy Way while the owner was out of the home between 11:10 a.m. and 2:37 p.m.
Investigators said – as in other burglaries – the thieves made entry from the rear of the home, smashing the glass of a French door and searching for items inside. The suspects removed property and fled the home before the owner returned.
Police believe the suspects likely accessed the home and the neighborhood by using Upper Happy Valley Road and North or South Peardale Drive. They are asking residents to review camera footage of those approaches for sign of suspicious people – perhaps approaching homes asking for directions – or cars.
Residents with information are asked to email the PD tip line at firstname.lastname@example.org or their dispatch center at (925) 284-5010.
