It's 4:18 am and you didn't see anything.

From Thursday's police blotter;
200 block of Homer Ave., 4:18 am: A tool bag and emergency kit was stolen from a car.
200 block of Homer Ave., 4:18 am: A woman's makeup bag was stolen from her car.
200 block of Homer Ave., 4:18 am: A man's iPod was stolen from his car.

Scenario #1: One break-in occured and various things were stolen. The report makes it look like three different break-ins.
Scenario #2: Three different break-ins were coordinated by three burglars working in unison.
Scenario #3: Three different break-ins, but the victims coordinated their calls to the police.
Scenario #4: Different break-ins happened sometime in the middle of the night. The police are confident that no one witnessed any activity and file their reports. For the Palo Alto police department everything that occurs at night without a witness happens at 4:18 am.

The cops probably showed up and saw three cars in a row with their windows smashed.

John 4:18 says "for you have had five husbands" -- I think there are two more cars out there with broken windows...
