No stranger to the ills of surrounding cities but usually blissfully cut off from the types of crime seen by cities and towns adjacent to freeway escape routes, Moraga was visited twice by burglars this past week and the police are advising residents to take precautions.
On Monday, a Kazar Ct. resident reported that someone had entered their home and stolen money, Moraga police determining that entry appeared to have been made through an unlocked rear bedroom window.
The resident reported leaving the home for a short time early that morning and police say the thief or thieves entered the residence at that time, taking about $100 in cash.
Later in the day, police said someone entered a Wickham Drive home through an unlocked window, ransacked the home and left with an undetermined amount of property.
Acting Police Chief Jon King again advised residents to “report suspicious persons in your neighborhoods. Most of us can see the difference between someone visiting your neighbor and someone who is randomly assessing homes and checking to see if someone is home. We want to receive the suspicious person calls and will respond to the area and contact the individuals.”
