Just a FYI. This occurred at the Woodside Horse Park. Vigilant members there got their license. They also left a big pieces of their headlight which was damaged after hitting a pole while exiting the Horse Park. Be careful not to leave valuables in your car.

This also occurred at Woodside Elementary school a little over a month ago! (2) Auto burglaries in one night!

Lock em up for life in prison, they're just going to continue terrorizing the neighborhood if no action is taken (sadly the norm these days). People like this have no place in Portola Valley and Woodside

Yes, no place for criminals in PV, particularly the kind that commit treason and extortion for personal gain. Good think the baby balloon crybaby left last week!

I am curious to learn a number of things surrounding events like this. Perhaps some knowledgeable person can educate me/us:
- what happens now?
- do they stay in jail until a court case or plea agreement?
- how long does this typically take? Days/weeks/months?
- what does this typically cost we taxpayers?
- are they likely to serve a jail/prison term?
- typical duration for this type of crime?

- did they assume they could continue to burglarize and not get caught?
- or did short-term thinking/needs overwhelm this consideration?
- was addiction a factor in this?
- given being caught and the consequences, would the burglars still risk this?

- have they been through this cycle before?
- what do we know about the likelihood they will return to this line-of-work after being released?

Eager to learn and understand how we can improve our community.

"People like this have no place in Portola Valley and Woodside"
Could you name some towns "people like this" do have a place in?
