Burglars hit two Menlo Park businesses

Police believe cases connected

The end of the work day for employees was just the start of the work day for some burglars, who hit two Menlo Park businesses overnight on Halloween.

One break-in proved more profitable than the other; the thieves who cut a chain link fence at Fortistar Methane Group on Marsh Road walked away with a compressor, printer, and hand tools worth about $600, according to police.

Although they also squeezed through the fence at a West Bay Sanitary District supply yard next door, the burglars left empty-handed after causing about $1,700 worth of damage by busting the windows on several vehicles, police said.

Police spokesperson Nicole Acker said investigators believe the cases are connected.
