Orinda police officers fell in behind a car carrying suspected burglars after an apparent break-in attempt on Broadview Terrace around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
According to passersby who contacted this site, the car was occupied by at least two women in their 20s. The car they were in was stopped by police on Moraga Way minutes after a neighbor reported it on Broadview. Officers were examining items found in the car for possible ties to earlier crimes.
The two women in the car at the time were detained by police.
A home in the unit block of Broadview Terrace was found to have a broken rear window shortly after police detained the women. It was not immediately known if items were taken from that home.
We’ll update this story as additional details come to light.
