Thieves break into four cars on Sand Hill Road

by Sandy Brundage

Clean cars, dirty cars, BMW, Audi — the burglars weren't picky as they broke into four vehicles on Sand Hill Road on Aug. 15.

A witness described the suspects as two black men about 6 feet tall, one thin with braided hair in a white T-shirt and black jeans, the other about 190 pounds with a short beard, sunglasses, black baseball hat, dark sweatshirt and black jeans, Menlo Park police said.

The two men reportedly broke into a "very dirty BMW 525i," then shattered windows on a 2009 Chevy Tahoe and 2012 Audi Q7. Stolen: a briefcase with a MacBook, iPad, $400 and sunglasses with a total value of $3,700, and a gym bag holding an iPod and clothing worth $585.

Unsated, the burglars also raided a 2012 Toyota Highlander, grabbing a $450 iPhone; and a 2006 BMW 350i, taking a $100 iPhone, according to the police report.

The vehicles were parked in the 2900 block of Sand Hill Road near the Sharon Heights Golf and Country Club. Police ask that anyone with information about these crimes to call them at 330-6300.
