Over the past few weeks, the community of San Marino has experienced a rise in residential burglaries.

Over the past few weeks, the community of San Marino has experienced a rise in residential burglaries. The primary method of entry for these burglaries was through a rear door or window.  One burglary occurred when the suspect(s) climbed onto a second story balcony of the residence.  Throughout these investigations, we have found the property taken was primarily cash, jewelry, and small electronics.  Using our crime analysis software, it appears 9 of the burglaries occurred north of Huntington Drive between Bedford Road and Santa Anita Avenue.  The burglaries have been occurring throughout the week; however, the highest frequency has been during the evening hours.  We currently have no suspect or vehicle information.    
San Marino Police Department would like to remind our residents to “Hide It, Lock It, Keep It” and “If You See Something, Say Something.”  Security alarms and cameras are only helpful if you use them, especially on a regular basis.  Your cameras may very well lead to the identification and capture of burglary suspects in your neighborhood.  The Police Department does not charge for false alarms, so please do not cancel a police response if you are not home, even if it has only been a few minutes since you left.  Additionally, if you are going away on vacation please contact the Department for the House Watch Program
Simple Reminders:
- Lock your doors
- Set your alarm system and add security cameras as part of your system
- Use security lighting
- If you’re ever in doubt, allow the police to respond and confirm there is no crime
- Use the Police Department’s House Watch Program (Only $5 per day)
- Join Neighborhood Watch and get to know your neighbors
