A lot of times, burglars will look for easy-target homes. If doors an windows are unlocked, this gives criminals easy access.
But Atherton Police say the most recent home break in was a little bit more brazen. This time, they forced their way through a locked door at a house on Nora Way.
It’s hard to say if the burglars had been scoping out the home for a while or if they peeked into a window to see if there was something they wanted to run off with. In this case, after they gained entry, they stole an expensive 5o inch flat screen television.
A spokesperson for the Atherton PD said it looks like the criminals tried to use a tool to break into a few different windows but when that didn’t work they kicked down a door.
Anyone who thinks they have information about this crime is asked to call and place an anonymous tip. Once the wrongdoers are captured, they’ll be arrested and booked into the San Mateo County jail where they’ll be held on bail bonds.
