Thieves hit Bonair home, Gwen Couture


A commercial burglary and a residential break-in reported to police over the weekend netted thieves a collection of cash and property, Alan Alvarez, community relations officer for San Diego Police Northern Division, said Tuesday.

Sometime between 3 and 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 19, thieves broke the glass door at Gwen Couture at 5745 La Jolla Blvd. and stole the cash register and $178 in cash, he said.

In the other break-in which occurred between Nov. 18 and Nov. 20, the owners of the home in the 500 block of Bonair Street returned from a weekend away to find a rear door open and a chair propped up under window that had been pried open. As they looked around the house, Alvarez said, they found the bedrooms had been ransacked and that jewelry, a TV and video games were missing.

The residents told police they had secured the home before leaving.
