Crime Briefs from the Daily Journal - Burlingame police warn of auto break-ins
Restaurant patrons who leave valuables such as purses, briefcases, laptop bags or electronic items are increasingly becoming the victims of crimes, the Burlingame Police Department warned yesterday. During the past several months, police are reporting that the number of auto burglaries is on the rise in the city and other areas of San Mateo County. The criminals often walk between vehicles in parking lots and smash window to grab something inside or in the trunk, police reported. The crimes usually occur during busy lunch and dinner hours. Anyone with any information about these crimes is asked to call Inspector Kevin Kashiwahara of the Burlingame Police Department's Investigation Unit
Last week the window of our new car parked on Primrose was smashed and a laptop gently removed. Perhaps it is now on Ebay?!
