Early Morning Burglary At Macy's

Thieves broke windows and stole an undisclosed amount of jewelry.

Thieves smashed windows in the early morning hours on Tuesday and broke into the Broadway Plaza Macy's store, getting away with an undisclosed amount of jewelry.

According to KTVU, police were not notified for more than an hour after the 3:15 a.m. incident. There was no explanation from Macy's about the delay in notifying police.

Stay tuned to Patch for updates to this story as they become available.

The Macy's store in Walnut Creek was broken in to. Nothing in this article says a car was broken in to.

What were the Walnut Creek police doing that made them over an hour late to a crime scene?? What do they do other than enforce traffic, follow up on noise complaints, harass the homeless, and stop tweens from smoking in the parks?

your rant was longer than the blurb you didn't bother reading

@Jen Watson, Be careful when you throw stones......you obviously didn't bother to read the article very closely either....."police were not notified for more than an hour after the 3:15 a.m. incident. There was no explanation from Macy's about the delay in notifing police." (the misspelling of "notifying" is not mine) The WCPD is not to blame for a slow response as there were not even called until an hour after the burglary. Our police force is grossly understaffed but manage to provide fine service in dangerous situations. Their mission in life is to provide coverage for a very busy downtown balanced with coverage for citizens in the neighborhoods which is not an easy task. As to harassing the homeless, please provide examples as I doubt that many of the homeless would actually complain about their treatment in Walnut Creek. Enforce traffic.....almost impossible as the department currently has no motor officers due to staffing problems and retirements. I highly doubt that many tweens are actually being told to stop smoking in parks etc. as the officers on duty at any time have more important calls to attend to. We can be very proud of our fine police department who "serrve and protect" as best as they can with limited resources.
