Crime brief

Apartment burglarized twice

An apartment in the 200 block of Church Street was burglarized twice in less than two weeks, according to police.

The victim, a 29-year-old woman, told the Mountain View Police Department someone entered her apartment on Sept. 24 and Oct. 5 — the first time stealing her wallet and credit cards, the second time taking her laptop, iPad and some jewelry.

In both instances the woman said that one of the entrances to her apartment was unlocked, according to Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer with the MVPD.

The first time, she went out to walk her dog at about 2 p.m. on Sept. 24 and left her front door open. When she returned home at about 3 p.m., she didn't notice anything wrong, Thompson said. The next day, however, she got a fraud alert call from her credit card company. She realized someone must have entered her apartment and taken her wallet and credit cards.

On Oct. 5, she left the apartment at 12 p.m. and returned at 4 p.m., Thompson said. She admitted that this time she had left a different door to the apartment open. When she came back she discovered that her iPad, Macbook Pro and a necklace with an oval ruby were all missing.

Police currently have no witnesses or surveillance footage of the crime.
