Orinda PD Releases Video Of Burglary In Progress


Orinda police recently released surveillance video of one of three residential burglaries reported in the city between Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

As you can see, it is a classic example of a “Back Door” break-in currently plaguing the area.

In the video you will see a suspect approach the front door. At 23 seconds, he rings the doorbell rings and waits to see if anyone will answer. He then disappears from view. At 1:27, you can hear a rear window getting smashed. The suspects then enter the home. They spend about 3-1/2 minutes in the house before fleeing.

Between November 30, 2015 and December 1, 2015, three residential burglaries occurred in the City of Orinda. The first took place on November 30 during the mid-morning hours. The second happened on December 1 during the mid-morning hours. The third took place that same day during the mid-afternoon.

The two male suspects were captured on video surveillance during the third burglary.

The Orinda Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying the two suspects on the video and photos.

Suspect one is wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, white t-shirt, and dark and light color stripped pajama bottoms. The second suspect is wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with red writing on the front, blue jeans, and he has a dark cloth covering his face from the nose down.

Anyone with any information on these burglaries or the identities of the suspects is asked to contact the Orinda Police Department at 925-254-6820. For any tips, please email: tips@so.cccounty.us or call (866) 846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.


  1. Yep thats a burglary allright. Sorry for the homeowners. It’s not fun knowing people like that have been in your home.

  2. It’s creepy as hell to watch that video –but what marvelously nice, clear shots of the thieves’ faces! I also wonder if they left any fingerprints around … All in all, makes a good case for having a big or noisy dog.

  3. Don’t forget to mention the black underwear of the one walking like a jerk penguin. Hope they get caught and put in a work camp somewhere instead of a slap on the wrist.

  4. All sort of revenge fantaasy when I see this stuff. It really burns me up. I feel for the woman who wrote about what it was like having these people in her home. I would be so pissed.

  5. The one guy using his shirt or something to keep from leaving prints. I don’t think I could go back to my house after these guys were in it. Hope they are caught soon.

  6. The video is chilling. I’m sorry this happened to her, and I hope they catch them. Large dogs are a great deterrent, and hopefully their license plate number is on camera somewhere.
