    I want all Richmore Village neighbors to know that any vacant houses alongside you are a calling card for burglars. Our home, flanked by two vacant houses for sale, was burglarized on 1/25/08. Just around 6 p.m. Our house backs up to the BART tracks and set the perfect stage for a burglar to break in our back window. We are very upset and this is not just about the missing items but the emotional distress on all of us. We have 3 children, the oldest 12 yrs, won’t even sleep in his room because he is afraid to be in his room alone. We are thinking of barring the windows, which doesn’t promote a beautiful neighborhood but we don’t feel safe any more. We did not have a security system but from the looks of the crime they were in and out in 10 minutes. I’ve heard that gating Richmore Village was once a thought? Comments?
