Veteran readers are aware (hopefully) of the burglary crews currently at work in the 24/680.
Practiced, and very slippery, these crews strike at all hours and are entering homes through rear sliding glass doors. Another local family, living in the 3000 block of Plymouth Road in Lafayette, was victimized this week.
“Unfortunately our home on Plymouth Road near Acalanes HS was broken into about 1 to 2pm on Wed,” they wrote. “They broke through the rear sliding glass door and stole several thousands dollars worth of electronics, cameras, and cash from my son’s piggy bank…”
The residents requested that anyone who may have noted anything amiss on that day and time to check their surveillance system and contact Lafayette police.
“I filed a police report with Lafayette PD and they said there has been an uptick in these crimes,” the father of the house wrote. “My neighbor down the street had his catalytic converter stolen from his driveway a few weeks ago…”
Yes. Both crimes are unfortunately common occurrences these days. If anyone can help this family, be sure to reach out.
