The San Rafael Police Department is notifying and requesting assistance from the community about a recent increase in daytime residential burglaries. There have been several burglaries in virtually every neighborhood in the City of San Rafael since January 18th. The method of the burglaries has been similar in the following areas:
Due to the timeframe on some of the burglaries, it would appear that the suspects may have been in the area and watched the resident leave their home prior to committing the crime. In a couple of incidents the burglars have hit multiple homes on the same street during the commission of their crime.
These burglaries may be linked to other burglaries throughout Marin County. For this reason, the San Rafael Police Department is asking residents to be vigilant with regard to vehicles and people in their neighborhoods that they do not otherwise recognize to be their neighbors or otherwise bonaifide service personnel.
