On 12-28-15 at 7:20am, a residential burglary was reported in the unit block of Winchester Drive. The homeowner woke up to find an unknown subject in the home with a blanket over his head. The subject ran out of the house only taking a blanket.
Here are some suggestions to help prevent residential burglaries:
1) Keep all doors and windows closed and locked while you are away and at night while you are asleep.
2) Use your alarm system both while you are away and while you are at home, especially at night while you are asleep.
3) Keep exterior lights on during hours of darkness.
As always, if you see suspicious activity in your neighborhood, contact the Atherton Police Department at 650-688-6500 or dial 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency.
