Community Alert--Daytime Residential Burglaries

In the last four weeks, the San Rafael Police Department has seen a rise in daytime residential burglaries in San Rafael.  Residents have reported fourteen burglaries with eight of them in the Terra Linda area and the other six in various areas of San Rafael. 

These burglaries are mainly occurring between 9am and 12pm.  The unknown suspect(s) are at times breaking a window to the house to gain entry and other times are using a pry tool or entering unlocked residences.  All of the burglaries have occurred when the resident is not home. 

San Rafael Police Detectives are following up on leads based on witness statements and evidence left at the scene.  San Rafael Patrol Officers are doing extra patrols in their beats during the above time frame.

Please be vigilant in locking your residence when you are leaving, set a burglar alarm (if you have one), and remove any belongings that someone can see from the outside.  Please call SRPD on either 911 if an emergency, or 415-485-3000 (non-emergency), if you see any suspicious people or activity in your neighborhood. 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the San Rafael Police Department at 415.485.3000.  SRPD has access to interpreters if necessary and you may remain anonymous.  You may also leave information on our website http://www.srpd.org/tips.
