Four bikes stolen

Four bicycles were stolen Aug. 5 from a garage in the 300 block of Central Avenue, police said.

The 44-year-old owner of the bikes returned from an out-of-town trip shortly before midnight to find the door to the detached garage where she stores her bikes was open, according to Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie. Missing from the open garage were two light blue Ellsworths, a black Canfield Bros. and a white Felt.

There was no sign of forced entry into the garage, which is shared by other residents of the adjacent townhouse complex, Wylie said. Police are not sure if someone with access to the garage stole the bikes, if someone neglected to close the garage or if someone figured out another way to get the door open.

Carport storage burglarized

A pair of speakers, speaker stands and a electrically powered saw were stolen from a carport storage locker in a Mountain View apartment complex, police said.

Sometime between the morning of Aug. 2 and the evening of Aug. 3, someone pried the hasp off the door of the storage locker and made off with the goods, which belonged to a 44-year-old man living in the apartment complex, located at 240 Ortega Ave., Mountain View Police Department spokeswoman Liz Wylie said.

The speakers and matching stands, made by JBL, are worth an estimated $1,280, according to Wylie. The stolen Makita electric saw is worth about $150.
