Police are investigating a burglary at a Hillsborough home where a back door was left unlocked overnight.
Officers got a report around 7 a.m. that electronics and other valuables had been stolen from a home near Summit Drive while the residents were away, Sgt. Patrick Barrett said.
"That is pretty standard for a residential burglary - people will take things that can be pawned," he said.
Officers determined that one or more suspects entered the home through an unlocked side gate and unlocked back door, according to police.
Police are reminding residents to secure their homes and activate any alarm systems before leaving.
Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call Hillsborough police at (650) 375-7470
