HERCULES -- A person broke through a side garage door and burglarized a home Tuesday, the sixth such incident in this city this week and the 13th in April, police said Thursday.

Small electronic gadgets, silverware, jewelry and cash were taken from the home in the 100 block of Grissom Court, Hercules police Officer Connie Van Putten said. Police were notified about 5:30 p.m., and investigators believe the burglary happened after 7:30 a.m., she said.

No one was injured during the burglary, and the thief or thieves got away.

"This one was in the same general area (as some of the previous burglaries), but there was more ransacking of the home then there tends to have been in the previous ones, and in this case, the side garage door was forced open," Van Putten said. "The other (burglaries) targeted open windows and there wasn't as much ransacking. That's not to mean it couldn't be the same people."

On Monday, five homes were burglarized in a seven-hour period, and police said four males appeared to be tied to at least three of them. The four escaped after a brief police pursuit followed one of the burglaries, ditching a stolen Honda Odyssey stolen Sunday from San Francisco on Cutting Boulevard in Richmond.
