The laptop was taken from the vehicle's trunk while the other items were stolen from the car's cabin.

A neighbor of his, a woman, reported that sometime between about 7:30 p.m. March 24 and 1:54 p.m. March 25, someone entered her locked Volkswagen and stole three toy Airsoft toy guns and an Apple iPod. She told the deputy taking the report that a neighbor's surveillance camera caught images of suspects aiming a device at another locked car in the neighborhood before entering it.

March 27

Petty theft: 5000 block of Hill Street. A man reported that while his family was out of town, someone stole a package containing items ordered through Zulily that had been delivered to their home at about 10:23 a.m. March 24, according to the delivery service's records.

A neighbor told the responding deputy that at about 7:15 a.m. on March 26 he saw a black, two-door Toyota Yaris, with a female at the wheel, parked directly in front of his house. He saw a white male, described as 5 feet 10, about 180 pounds, get out of the car, walk onto the victims' front porch and pick up a brown package. The suspect then walked back to the Yaris, opened its hatchback and put the package in the car. The Yaris was then moved about four doors southbound on Hill Street.

The witness stepped out into his yard and saw another male, described as about 5 feet 9 and about 160 pounds, standing two doors away from his home. The second suspect got into the vehicle and it was driven further southbound on Hill and then out of view.
