Continuing a losing streak, burglars struck at least twice in Menlo Park on Tuesday (Sept. 27), but only stole once.
An alarm at a home in the 1000 block of Atkinson Lane scared away whomever tried to pry open the door, the owner reported to police shortly after 10 a.m.
Some residents living in the 100 block of Cornell Road weren't so lucky. They lost jewelry, a laptop, and two digital cameras during the early afternoon, thanks to unidentified suspects who removed the screen from a rear window for an all-access pass to the home.
Police spokesperson Nicole Acker said investigators don't know yet whether the recent home burglaries are connected.
