Palo Alto – The Palo Alto Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man and woman who were captured by video surveillance committing a brazen daytime residential burglary.

According to PAPD, “On Friday, November 18, 2016, at about 1:00 p.m., our 24-hour dispatch center received a call of a burglary that had occurred that morning at a home in the 1000 block of Moreno Avenue.”  The victims of the home burglary reported that the crime occurred some time between 8:20 a.m. and 12:20 p.m.

Two suspects, a man and a woman, were captured by video surveillance knocking on the front door before entering the victims backyard where they forced open a locked sliding door to enter the home.

According to police video surveillance captured the couple making several trips to and from their car carrying electronics and other items to their car.

When the victims searched their home for any missing items, it was found that the suspects had stolen jewelry, camera equipment, electronics, and other personal items.

According to the PAPD, “a neighbor’s surveillance camera captured their car, a black mid-1990s four-door Honda Civic, as it left the scene.” The Palo Alto Police Department has reported a total of 88 residential burglaries this year. Which shows a thirty-eight percent decrease from 2012 with a high of 226 burglaries reported.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call our 24-hour dispatch center at 650-329-2413.  Anonymous tips can be e-mailed to or sent via text message or voice mail to 650-383-8984.  Tips can also be submitted anonymously through our free mobile app, downloadable at or
