A longtime family pizza restaurant in the California Avenue business district lost $600 after a burglar or burglars pried open the back door either Tuesday, May 8, or Wednesday, May 9, Palo Alto police Sgt. Rich Bullerjahn said.

An employee of Ramona's Pizza locked up the building at 2313 Birch St. at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday, but upon returning the next morning at 9:45 a.m., the employee discovered the back door had been pried open with an unknown tool.

No mention of surveillance cameras. The police can only do so much with small amounts of evidence, like pry marks on a door frame.

Small businesses need to take precautions to protect their assets. which includes installing technology that can help the police identify people involved in criminal acts.
