Attempted burglary

Police believe someone attempted to break into a home on the 1800 block of Fordham Way sometime between June 26 in the evening and the morning of June 27.

A painter working on the house, which is under construction, told police that when he arrived to work on the house at 7 a.m. on June 27, he noticed pry marks on a side door to the home's garage, according to Sean Thompson, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department.

The painter said the pry marks weren't there when he left the house the previous day at 8 p.m., Thompson said. The painter also told police that a spool of wire had been taken from the back yard.
