My wife and I were leaving our house at the corner of Pedregosa and Mountain Ave. at 3:30 and noticed an unknown vehicle parked nearby.

We decided to go around the block and saw that the occupants had entered our gated yard after we left. We called the Police (who were totally awesome!!) and watched to see what would happen. The two crooks from the car came out our driveway gate with nothing in hand (because everything is locked up) and went back to their car parked around the corner.

We are guessing the dogs started barking or they noticed our security cameras. They quickly left only a minute before the police arrived... so close. In any case we gave all of our info and camera photos to the police and they already knew who the crooks were from prior incidents. Hopefully this will be one piece of evidence when they are caught in the act.

Description of person involved – Hair: Red, short and dishevled, Top: Black T with a white square emblem on the front, Bottom: black shorts to the knees, Shoes: black flip flops, Age: Mod 30's, Build: Tall, trim, Race: White,, Sex: Male, Other details: Pale skin, acne or picked at face

Description of person involved – Hair: Black or dark brown, Top: black T, Bottom: Black pants, Age: 30, Build: slender, trim, Race: white, Sex: male, Other details: dark ball cap

They were driving a bright blue Nissan 380Z license 7YPH136. The police already know the driver and the car. Now just need to catch them in the act.

Meth-heads and NOTHING will happen. As you stated, the cops even KNOW who they are, yet the DA won't prosecute because the "Wheels of Justice" in California are no longer turning. Thanks Jerry Brown, HannaBeth Jackson, Das Williams and the voting majority of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

As reported there is no 'attempted burglary' shown here. Possibly a trespass which is never prosecuted. Do we have more information on what developed later?

Nothing happens even if they were caught stealing / shoplifting or any other crime where there is no bodily injury (s) to a victim- They simply get a "citation" and notice to appear in court. The criminals won't do any time what so ever... Our new California laws are so lax with regard to criminal prosecution that the criminals are running rampant.

California Penal Code 602 contains numerous 'trespass' laws but they require posting of the property and/or refusal to leave when told to do so and/or after having been told not to enter by the rightful occupant or authority. While this is suspicious more is needed to constitute a crime. (Maybe they were looking for their lost cat.)

No suspect info is never reported maybe the police will tell you call them and ask...602pc trespassing is prosecuted but in cases of suspicious behavior like this action will be remembered for next time.

Picked at face- meth? Hiding in plain sight in fancy car - meth? Urgent daylight burglaries- meth?

So they can buy a 30,000 dollar car but now they’re stealing? Hmmm. Maybe the car is stolen too?
