Car break-ins at the Junior Museum and Zoo


Burglars got away with stereo equipment and cash and other personal items after two Sunday afternoon auto burglaries outside the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo, Palo Alto police said.

The Labor Day weekend break-ins occurred on Sept. 4 at the museum, at 1451 Middlefield Road between 1 and 6 p.m., Sgt. Patty Lum said.

The thief or thieves dismantled a lock on one vehicle and took stereo equipment and cash. A window on the other vehicle was smashed and various personal items were taken, she said. Lum could not confirm the value of the items but said police do not have any suspects.

Wonder if there were surveillance cameras monitoring the parking areas that there might be some clues for the police to chase?

Daylight? A well-trafficked area? This does not bode well. . . .
