In a two-week period in November, police received 10 reports of burglaries at Los Altos construction sites, according to police Sgt. Brian Jeffrey. A city ordinance specifies permitted construction hours, so police urge residents to keep watch and call police if they observe suspicious activity.
Los Altos Police Department detectives are investigating 10 construction-site burglaries that occurred Nov. 13-27, confirming a spike in such crimes.
Sgt. Brian Jeffrey said the police department is working with neighboring law enforcement agencies “in an effort to collaborate on identifying related crimes and developing crime patterns” for the burglaries.
