Police nab daytime burglar Around Town, posted by Editor, Pleasanton Weekly Online, on Feb 12, 2013 at 12:07 pm
Lincoln's birthday may be in part responsible for the arrest of a Discovery Bay man in a Pleasanton burglary. Two juveniles were alone in their home yesterday about 2:45 p.m. when a white male adult began forcing entry into the side garage door.

Good work, Pleasanton Police.
I hear about these daytime burglaries involving entry through unlocked garage doors or unlocked back doors and wonder why more of these burglars aren't caught. Pretty brazen to attempt something like this in broad daylight. Let's all keep our eyes open.

I think that the remark about guns must have been a joke. While I would shed no tears over the robber getting hit by a gun, I don't think that I want to see uncontrolled bullets flying through the air in a neighborhood filled with innocent passerbys, including young children and women. Letting the dog take a few bites, though, is a great idea.

Clarence may have a point. We were broken into a couple of times. One time the robber didn't take anything but he left the seat up in the bathroom. Since then we don't lock our doors. Hey, if they want to get in they will, and why bother having to replace a window or door frame? And at least twice people have 'broken in' without breaking or stealing anything. When you've gotta go you've gotta go. I don't think throwing people in jail is the proper response.

Jordan, can you post again and be more specific about your neighborhood? We've also had people break in simply because they need to use a bathroom. It's happened to us at least twice! Maybe someone has a bladder problem? Thanks in advance!
