The Blotter | Residential burglary interrupted by police

House sitter reported people inside residence.

A residential burglary was apparently interrupted by Piedmont Police on March 11. A house sitter came to the residence to walk the dog and found two people inside the home on Oakland Avenue and a third in a black vehicle nearby around 10:11 p.m.

According to Piedmont Police Capt. Chris Monahan, police arrived and the three suspects fled in the black vehicle – no other description was available. It’s unknown if there was any loss at this time, according to Monahan. He said there was a safe that officers found that appeared to be tampered with.

There are no descriptions of the suspects.

On March 12, two suspects fled after allegedly breaking into a 2023 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The victim then pursued the suspects in their other pickup. The first report came in at 9:54 a.m.

The two suspects were described as a male and a female adults with the latter driving an Infiniti Q50 with no license plates, according to Monahan.

The victim cornered the suspects on an unidentified cul de sac in Oakland, according to Monahan, and the suspects then rammed the victim’s vehicle, damaging the front drivers side bumper. The suspect vehicle was recorded by the city’s Automated License Plate Reader system entering Piedmont at 9:38 a.m. and leaving at 9:59 a.m. The suspects took approximately $2,200 worth of tools from the parked Silverado, according to Monahan.

Also on March 12, a report came in on a silver Lexus with a shattered sunroof casing vehicles on Highland Avenue. A police officer spotted the vehicle and reported two suspects inside wearing ski masks, according to Monahan. The officer drew their firearm, according to the police log, and the suspects fled the scene.

A white Ford E250 van was reported stolen on March 11 from Selborne Drive. The report came in at 1:53 p.m. and the victim said it had been stolen in the past 30 minutes. The vehicle was seen on camera pulling onto Park Boulevard with a bearded, light-skinned male suspect driving, according to Monahan.
