An iPhone, iPad, purse and iPhone charger were stolen from an apartment in the 1600 block of Villa street sometime overnight between Aug. 31 and the morning of Sept. 1, police said.
The victims, a 27-year-old man and 31-year-old woman, were sleeping when a burglar or burglars entered their ground floor apartment through a sliding glass door which had been left slightly ajar, according to Liz Wylie, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.
"Lock your windows and doors," Wylie said. "That has become my mantra lately."
According to Wylie, burglaries are most often crimes of opportunity and securing all entry ways into a home is often enough to deter a would-be burglar.
