The following item was written by the Hercules Police Department

Residential Burglary:
On December 5, 2013, at about 11:43am, officers responded to the 100 block of Lilac Cir to investigate a report of an attempted residential burglary, which just occurred. The resident advised officers someone knocked at the door several times in addition to ringing the doorbell. The resident believed it was a solicitor and did not answer, but looked out of his upstairs window. He did not see anyone at the door. The resident looked towards the street and saw vehicle (newer model Ford Taurus 4D Silver), parked in 
front of his house, occupied by two males. The vehicle was seen driving away, on Hollyhock Ct; but the passenger was no longer in the vehicle. The vehicle circled the block a couple more times before the resident decided he didn’t need to look outside any longer. The resident then heard his wife yell that someone was trying to open the front door at which time he looked outside to see a an African American male, mid 20’s, 5’08”, 190lbs, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark pants prying at his door with a large crowbar. The resident yelled at the suspect who fled on foot. The resident chased after the suspect and saw him 
get into the vehicle he saw earlier. The vehicle fled. in an unknown direction, on Violet Rd. 

CRIME PREVENTION TIP: If someone you do not know knocks on your door, or rings the bell. Do not open the door, but let them know you are inside. Most burglaries are crimes of opportunity and the criminals are looking for unoccupied homes. If you are not at home leave a radio, or TV, on so it seems like there is someone inside.
