Someone broke into a home on the 400 block of Walsh Road in Atherton over the weekend. The burglar(s) broke a faucet in the process, causing "extensive water damage," according to a Nov. 13 Atherton police news bulletin.
Sometime between Friday, Nov. 12, and Saturday, Nov. 13, someone smashed a first floor rear window to break in. This is the 45th residential burglary in town this year, said Sgt. Anthony Kockler in an email.
Police currently don't know the value of goods taken.
The home has security cameras, but police don't yet have the photos to see what was captured, Kockler said.
Police remind residents to lock their doors and set their security alarms. The Atherton Police Department offers free alarm monitoring, which includes dispatch of officers upon activation.
