Restaurant burglaries net wine, food, cash -- and a safe

Two downtown eateries were hit the same night last week by burglars who made off with an 800-pound brass safe, cash and some pricey wine and steaks.

Pleasanton police reports said $4,600 in cash, a brass safe valued at $500, and steaks and tenderloins worth $600 were stolen from Pastas Restaurant in the 400 block of Main Street overnight Nov. 3. That burglary took place between 11:30 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday.

That same night -- between 2:25 a.m. and 2:53 a.m. -- according to a police report, Oasis Grill and Wine lounge in the 700 block of Main Street was also burglarized. In that theft, $242 in cash was taken, along with a bottle of Cakebread Cabernet valued at $798 and six bottles of Silver Oak Cabernet worth $708, along with Red Bull energy drinks and grapefruit juice.

Pry tools were used in both incidents, the reports said.

Jewelry worth $1,000 was stolen from a home in the 5600 block of Paseo Navarro on Nov. 5, according to a police report, which said access was gained through an open window. That incident occurred between 12:45 p.m. and 1:45 p.m.

In an unrelated incident, Garrett Forbes Boam of Danville was arrested after a traffic stop in the 6700 block of Santa Rita Road at 11:15 p.m. Nov. 4 that led to charges of probation violation, possession of stolen property, and possession of burglary tools, the police report said.
