[ARCHIVED] Construction Site Burglaries!!!

There were three reported construction site burglaries that occurred sometime between 5PM on 11/24/20015, and 8AM on 11/25/2015. Thieves stole construction equipment from addresses on Linda Vista, the 200 block of Atherton Avenue, and the 100 block of Almendral Avenue.

Construction sites in Atherton are frequently targeted for theft. In fact, they are one of the more common burglary crimes encountered in our jurisdiction. The thieves typically cut the locks on
the cyclone fence gates and use drills or torches to open job boxes or cargo containers. They target tools and materials such as copper.

At this time there are no suspects in any of the three construction site burglaries. If you live near a construction site and see or hear anything suspicious, please do not hesitate to call the Atherton Police Department @ (650) 688-6500.
