La Jolla Alta Mesa resident reports attempted break-in

A La Jolla Alta Mesa resident posted an advisory on the neighborhood-based social media site following what might have been an interrupted burglary: “We were just made aware of a burglary that was attempted at our home around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 18. While we were out of town for a few days, two of our home security cameras went offline and we didn’t think anything of it,” the post reads.

“Several days later, my husband received a notification that one of the cameras was pointed to the sky. He researched the history of motion clips in the ADT system and it shows a man attempting to open our back door and then tampering with the third camera which he was unable to disconnect and then pointed it upwards.”
