A home was burglarized at midday Thursday on Rio Oso Drive, Rancho Murieta Security reported. Property taken included two wrapped Christmas presents containing perfume and a computer dictation system. Two bottles of white wine were also taken.

The house apparently was entered through one of two unlocked rear doors. The homeowners left the house late in the morning and returned about two hours later.

Workers in the area saw two white males, possibly in their late teens, in the area during that time.  It's not known if they were involved in the crime.

A report was filed with the Sacramento Sheriff's Department, according to Security Chief Greg Remson.

FYI - Someone checked out our car

Just posting to share with everyone that the car vandals seem to be broadening their territory while on Christmas break. 

Overnight between the 15th and 16th, someone went through our car in our driveway on Trinidad Court.   It took us a few days to put the pieces together.  Nick had been out shopping that day and, among other things, bought a bunch of bags of pellets he had to unload when he got home.  After unloading he parked the car back in its usual spot.  I got home in the other car about 10:00 and nothing seemed awry, but the next morning he found the interior lights on and the glove compartment open in the Explorer parked in the driveway.  He always takes in the garage door opener and such, which he did this time, but isn't sure he remembered to lock the car - thinks he did, but just not positive.  At first we thought he might have left the door ajar, but he hadn't been in the glove box and we realized I would have seen the interior lights when I got home at 10:00.  At any rate, there wasn't anything for anyone to take and all our registration docs were still there so no harm, no foul for the most part, though now that I think about it, I wonder if they took the garage door opener for my friend's garage in another town thinking it would get them in here.  Ha, ha.  Laughs on them - good luck with finding that garage.
