Sleeping Bernal Heights woman wakes to find car gone and front door ajar

When a 66-year-old resident of Bernal Heights went to bed Wednesday night, her car was safe and sound. Her front door was shut tight and her belongings were secure.

But when she woke up, her car was gone along with her keys, tablet, money and laptop.

The thief, who remains at large, seemingly came into the house near the intersection of Faith Street and Holladay Avenue while the resident was sleeping and took off with her belongings — maybe in her own automobile.

It appears the burglar was in a hurry too; the front door was left open.

Police say the home invasion theft happened in the late night or early morning hours.
