At 7pm, a resident of the 600 block of west Orange Grove Avenue was inside her home when she observed a person looking into her kitchen window.  The individual quickly moved away from the window and was gone before police units arrived.  The resident could not provide a description as she saw only portions of the suspect’s torso.  An examination of the area failed to locate any evidence.

In the early afternoon, an unknown suspect broke the side window of a vehicle parked in the Bailey Canyon Parking Lot.  The suspect removed a purse that had been placed under the front seat and fled without being seen.  While investigating this crime, the officers discovered that a second vehicle in the lot had been broken into in the same fashion. A purse was taken from the second vehicle.  This is the third vehicle burglary in the Baily Canyon Parking Lot this month.  In each of the crimes the suspect smashed a side window and took property that was easily reachable.
