Atherton burglary, prowler reports

Atherton police are advising residents to take precautions to protect their property in the wake of two prowler reports, a residential burglary and an auto burglary, all of which took place on Friday, Oct. 11, police said.

In the residential burglary, someone used a rock to shatter a side-door window of a home in the 200 block of Atherton Avenue, possibly between 9:30 p.m. and midnight, police said. Someone entered the unoccupied house and appears to have gotten away with a "liquor bottle," police said.

Earlier that afternoon at about 3:30 p.m. on Fairview Avenue, a resident reported seeing a man leaving the property. Later, at 11:15 p.m., police received another prowler report, from a residence on Linda Vista Avenue. The stranger disappeared behind a building, but a motion-activated flood light came on that illuminated the area. Witnesses described the suspect as a white adult male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

In the auto burglary, on Carolina Lane, someone entered an unlocked vehicle parked in a residential driveway, according to a report submitted at 7:49 p.m.
