Seeking help from the public to identify burglary suspects caught on home surveillance

On May 15, 2015 at about 3:44 pm, Los Altos Police Officers responded to the 600 block of Harrington Court regarding a residential burglary. At least two suspects had entered the home by forcing entry through a rear window. No residents were home at the time.

A security camera captured images of the suspects during the crime. Video is available online at:

Both suspects are African American males approximately 18-25 years of age. Both wore hooded sweatshirts with their hoods up. One wore a grey sweatshirt, the other wore blue sweatshirt. The suspect in grey carried a blue duffel bag. Electronic devices and jewelry have been reported missing as a result of the burglary.

Los Altos Police are seeking the assistance of the public in identifying the suspects. Police ask that anyone with information about the burglary or the identity of the pictured suspects contact the Investigative Services Division at (650) 947-2770.

The Los Altos Police Department would also like to remind the public to be vigilant in the following areas:

  • Reporting suspicious activity in your neighborhood (i.e. any individuals exhibiting behavior consistent with “casing” the neighborhood, aggressive solicitors, suspicious vehicles not known to the neighborhood, etc.). When calling, be ready to articulate specific observations, which would substantiate suspicions. 
  • Securing your home:  There are a variety of preventative measures community members can take to secure their homes and deter criminal activity. Some of these techniques include installing burglar alarms, locking perimeter gates and access points, installing exterior motion lights, and video surveillance systems. Any residents interested in receiving a free home security inspection are asked to contact Community Service Officer Josh Cottrell at (650) 947-2647.

Please report all suspicious activity to the Los Altos Police Department at (650) 947-2770. 

For emergency calls, or suspected in-progress crimes, please dial 9-1-1
