The big story this week is the rash of home burglaries in Lafayette. City Manager Steven Falk detailed the incidents in his weekly e-mail blast last Friday. Residents have set up a Google group and a neighborhood watch program, and Chief Mike Hubbard said a couple of the alleged burglars have been arrested.
All told, between March 9 and March 19 I counted more than a dozen residential burglaries.
Also, about $1,400 worth of stuff was taken from an unlocked car in the 400 block of Moraga Way in Orinda on St. Patty’s Day. That’s not completely bad luck. Lock your cars, folks.
Finally, EastBayDaze has this post about snatch-and-grab thefts of iPhones in Orinda.
