Moraga Police are investigating a series of thefts and burglaries

On Sunday June 30 about 6:30 a.m., Moraga Police received a call of suspicious persons who were trying car door handles and looking into parked vehicles in the Rimer/
Camino Pablo/Larch neighborhoods. When officers responded to the area, they located the subjects entering a garage on Larch. The suspects were able to get into a grey Lexus and drove out of the area at a high rate of speed. Officers pursued the vehicle on Canyon Road, but discontinued the pursuit because of safety concerns.
Officers found that the subjects drove a stolen Lexus into Town and entered at least 15 different unlocked vehicles throughout those neighborhoods. Unfortunately, some of those vehicles had garage door remote controls inside, allowing the suspects access to garages, through which they were able to enter residences. We are currently investigating all of the incidents and coordinating with other jurisdictions where these individuals also committed crimes.
For those of you in the Rimer/Camino Pablo/Larch neighborhoods who have security cameras, please check your cameras during the 6:00 to 6:30 a.m. time period and look for recordings of individuals who are checking car door handles or garage doors or of a grey Lexus cruising by your home. If you have these recordings, please contact us via Dispatch at 925-284-5010.
For everyone in town, please ensure that you keep your vehicle and house doors closed and locked when you are not using them. Please do not store valuables in your vehicles - even those things that may not be valuable to you, but may appear to be valuable to someone else. Please also be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious persons to the Moraga Police by calling Dispatch at 925-284-5010 (for emergencies, dial 9-1-1).
Remember that criminals are not dumb - they like to go places where they can easily steal things and escape. If we work together and make it difficult for them by ensuring that vehicles and houses are secure, they will hopefully realize that it is not easy to commit crimes in Moraga and go somewhere else.
Thank you for helping keep Moraga a safe community.
