    I was in contact with the Cupertino Village management (KimCo Realty) after my car was broken into TWICE in 6 months in the lot there. Both times well lit areas. They’ve apparently done nothing to improve security. Shame. I will avoid that lot, and the businesses, until the situation improves.

    As of August 20th, the police still do absolutely NOTHING to stop these burglaries from happening. In all these incidents the suspect(s) were never caught. What the hell is Sheriff’s Office doing? Set up security cameras, assign patrols, or do anything to try to stop this from happening. This type of crime is happening way too frequently right now especially in a nice area like Cupertino.
