Residents of the 24/680 Corridor don’t need to be told that we’ve been hit hard lately by car burglars perfectly willing to smash a window for an unattended iPhone or antique Fender Strat.
Some locals remain amazed by the accessibility of those and other items as locals, apparently quite comfortable with their surroundings, continue to leave all sorts of desirable goods – often in plain sight.
We received this note and the accompanying photo on the NEWS24/680 Tip Line just this morning:
Spotted just outside the Orinda Post Office this morning — new Mercedes, doors unlocked, with (camouflaged) bag / iPhone sitting on the front seat.
Catnip to a car burglar.
Perhaps this will provide the nagging thought that saves you a purse or computer!
