Burglaries, Regency Drive, Hopkins Way

Original post made by anon, Vintage Hills Elementary School, on Mar 28, 2012

From another news source:

PLEASANTON -- A Regency Drive resident interrupted a burglar who was trying to break in through a side window after ringing the doorbell Monday morning, police said.

Around 11:35 a.m. the man heard his doorbell ring, but did not answer it. Moments later, he saw a man trying to break in through a sliding window from his side yard, according to a Pleasanton police press release.

After noticing he had been spotted, the suspect fled to a waiting black sedan, which headed toward Foothill Road. A few minutes later, another driver saw the occupants of a black sedan throwing objects out of their car near the intersection of Stoneridge Drive and Foothill Road, police said.

Officers later traced those objects to a home on Hopkins Way in Pleasanton that had been burglarized, police said.

Guess you missed the part in the article that said they made their getaway in a black sedan, not BART.

Love my dogs even more! I'm so embarrassed when a friend or delivery person comes to the door, and the dogs are not acting hospitable, but I guess it's a small price to pay. Thanks "anon" for posting this - it's important that we get timely information - not two weeks from now. What is your source?

I've heard that we should always let the person at the door know we are home, as irritating as that is. However, if it's a solicitor,we may not WANT to interrupt our work or meal to speak to them, because some often just talk right over you, and pretend they didn't hear you say you aren't interested, or to leave. I started another topic several days ago about this - the police dispatcher (at their nonemergency number) told me the solicitor that came to my door and sprayed cleaning fluid on my tile from outside the door, without permission, "had a right" to come to my door until 8 pm, and that my no soliciting sign was useless.

So here we are asked to be considerate of a stranger's "rights" to solicit on our doorstep, yet we have criminals also coming to our door. So do they have that "right" too, until we ask them to leave? How can we distinguish? IMO we can't, so my policy is to let my dogs be as loud as they like, and probably just ask them to leave through the door (without opening it). I really hate that it's come to this - I don't like being forced to be what I consider is rude.

What does Obama have to do with this? There was crime long before Obama was president and there will be crime long after.
I don't think Obama had too much to do with the Bart route either? I think that was long on service before Obama become president.
