On Monday, a daytime burglar reportedly crept into a home in the 800 block of Hamilton Avenue through an unlocked back window, and left with $2,800 of ill-gotten gains, namely, a 40-inch flatscreen television and a laptop.
A home on the 1400 block of Hill Avenue suffered similar bad luck on Tuesday, but not as much as the alleged burglars. Nathaniel Kinsey, 20, of Stockton, was arrested by police along with a teenage accomplice for reportedly stealing $6,400 worth of items that inexplicably included the pink slip to a car, along with earrings, checks, photos, a hard drive, speakers, and an iPod.
Wednesday brought a double-header. An open bathroom window in the 1100 block of Willow Road provided access to another daytime burglar, but not much by the way of stolen property – a DVD player worth about $30 was the sole item missing.
Also reported to police on Wednesday, a resident of the same street realized that on May 4 someone walked in through the front door and out with a folder containing a Bible, photos, passport, and $4,760 cash.
