A detail has been made public in the case of a residential burglary on Zapata Way in Portola Valley (first reported in a March 6 email to the community from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office): the burglar got away with $90,000 in cash, according to a brief entry in a Sheriff's Office crime log.
In the email, sheriff's deputies said the burglary occurred sometime between Feb. 28 and March 3 and showed no signs of forced entry into the home.
Neither the email nor the log entry says where in the house the money had been or how it had been packaged. Deputies did advise residents to "secure all valuables in a safe or a bank, if appropriate" and to "be aware of their surroundings."
The Sheriff's Office has not yet responded to a request for details.
Deputies said they had no leads on a suspect and are asking anyone with information to call the Sheriff's Office anonymous tip line at 1-800-547-2700.
