BLACKHAWK – Sheriff’s deputies are investigating multiple, possibly related residential burglaries that occurred this month in an upscale and otherwise safe community in unincorporated Danville.
Two residential burglaries, both on the 4200 block of Silver Meadow Court in the gated community of Blackhawk were reported during the month of November.
The first incident was reported at 8:44 pm, Thursday November 3rd when a resident returned home and discovered an unknown suspect had entered their home after breaking a glass door, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jimmy Lee.
The second burglary was discovered just a few houses down by a Sheriff’s deputy responding to an alarm activation at 7:36 pm Wednesday, November 16th. While searching the exterior of the house, deputy discovered that a rear sliding glass door had been smashed.
According to Lee, the suspect(s) in each burglary took numerous items from the residences.
Authorities believe the two burglaries are linked to each other. Both incidents occurred in a similar location and were burglarized in a similar fashion (broken rear sliding glass door).
Both San Ramon and Danville police departments have also reported various crimes in recent weeks.
In October, San Ramon has had reports of 11 auto burglaries, 3 residential burglaries and 3 stolen vehicles. Danville has had 1 reported commercial burglary, 3 auto burglaries and 1 residential burglary.
Unlike Danville and San Ramon, crime data from the Sheriff’s Office for Alamo and Blackhawk is not readily available to the public, making it difficult to know exactly how many crimes have been reported this month.
