Sometime between December 9 (early afternoon) and December 12 (4PM), a residential burglary occurred on Serrano Drive (near Stockbridge Avenue) in Atherton. The unknown suspect(s) gained access to the residence by smashing a window on the second story of the residence. The suspect(s) appeared to have used patio furniture (a couch turned on its side) to climb to the second story. No property has yet been reported stolen, as it appears the suspects may have fled after they discovered they did not enter the master bedroom.
The burglar alarm was armed, but did not activate when the burglars entered the residence.
As always, if you hear or see anything suspicious in your neighborhood, please do not hesitate to call the Atherton Police Department.
