Cow thieves strike in Los Altos Hills

 

A wooden cow valued at $50 was stolen from the yard of a home in Los Altos Hills at 6:50 p.m. Saturday by three juveniles who loaded it into the back of a tan Honda minivan.

The police know all this because the property owner has a video surveillance camera protecting his wooden cows, which are decorative and have been stolen before, said Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Serg Palanov. Police are reviewing the videotape.

Palanov declined to release the address of the property to protect it from future cow thefts.

Prior thefts occurred in 2005 and on May 15, 2006. The cow from the May 15th theft was recovered on a soccer field at the Hillview Community Center.
