Burglars swipe electronics from Woodside church

 

Burglars appear to have gotten away with electronic sound equipment valued at $2,000 after prying open a side door of the Woodside Village Church at 3154 Woodside Road, according to a June 18 report by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The thefts are believed to have taken place between July 8 and 13.

Items taken include wireless speakers, a DVD player, and handheld and lapel microphones, Lt. Ray Lunny of the Sheriff's Office said. Investigators would welcome witnesses as they yet have no leads, Lt. Lunny said. "Hopefully, someone comes forward," he added.

Asked if the investigating deputies had dusted the interior for fingerprints, Lt. Lunny replied that they did not as the case was a week old and the prints would not have been any good.

In any case, he added, there may well have been a large number of unique prints in the room, many of which would need to be recognized and set aside so as to focus on the prints of strangers. "When you have a church, holy cow," he said. "There's no way to do that.
