Burglar nabs jewelry, electronics

A home in the 1400 block of Meadow Lane was burglarized on March 26, police said. The thief made off with more than $6,500 in electronics, cameras and lenses, jewelry, foreign currency and watches.

The 47-year-old woman who lives in the house with her 48-year-old husband had left home that morning at about 8:15 a.m. and returned at about 3:15 p.m. to find that her bedroom had been ransacked — drawers flung open and clothing strewn about the floor, according to Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department.

The woman reported that a number of electronics were taken, including two tablet computers, a Kindle reader and two cell phones, Thompson said. The burglar reportedly made off with two Nikon digital cameras and a wide variety of lenses, Chinese and Taiwanese currency, assorted silver jewelry, a man's watch and a woman's watch. The estimated cost of all the stolen goods totaled $6,530, Thompson said.

The burglar probably entered the house through a side door to the garage, which may not have been locked, according to the police report. The woman told police that the door from the garage into the house was not locked. There was no sign of forced entry.

Laptop stolen

An Apple laptop was stolen from Instart Logic when the Mountain View company's offices were burglarized sometime in the early morning hours of March 26, police said.

Sometime between 4:14 a.m. and 7:15 a.m., someone pried open the front lobby doors at the company's 2307 Leghorn Dr. location, according to Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.

A laptop was the only thing reported missing, Thompson said.

iPad, jewelry stolen from home

A home in the 1600 block of Notre Dame Dr. was burglarized sometime between 10 a.m. and 1:35 p.m. on April 2, according to police.

Upon arriving at the house around 1:30 p.m. that afternoon, the nanny for the family discovered that someone had entered through the back of the house and ransacked the master bedroom, according to Sgt. Dan Vicencio, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.

An iPad and jewelry was taken in the burglary, Vicencio said.
