Police are searching for two people they believe burglarized a home in Orinda on Monday and may be responsible for a string of other burglaries in the city in the past six weeks. At about 11:30 a.m., police responded to a report of a residential burglary in the first block of Barbara Road. Numerous items had been taken from the home, including the victim’s ATM card. Shortly after the burglary, the ATM card was used in Richmond and Pinole, and investigators were able to capture images of a man and woman from the ATM cameras, police said. Orinda Detective Danny Jeffries said the male suspect is believed to be in his late 30s or early 40s and the female suspect is in her late 20s or early 30s. Police said there have been 11 burglaries in Orinda in the past six weeks. Jeffries said that several of them were committed in similar ways. The suspects kicked in back or side doors to homes and stole mainly electronics and jewelry. There have not been any burglaries in the city since police released the photos, but as of today the suspects had not been identified, Jeffries said. The Police Department is reminding residents to keep their doors and windows locked, consider installing alarm systems and to report suspicious activity.
