So much for "Lock It or Lose It". If she hadn't been home, this perp would have broken through her otherwise locked window and burgled her home.
Maybe it's time to consider bars on ground floor windows here in Palo Alto?

We live up the street on Maybell and the police and their German Shephered K9 came and sniffed around our house looking for the would be burgler. I learned about this when I came home from a back to school night and my middle and high schooler were home alone. I was alarmed to learn the police tapped on the window to ask the kids if they had seen anything. I was glad to hear the police were vigilant as the attempted burglary was several blocks from my home. However, it is a wake up call to be super VIGILANT. This was taking place early evening when most people are home. Lock up and keep an eye out!!!

Better have your 44's in your holster and ready.
