Why would someone break into a chiropractic office? Just to steal computers? They couldn't have many customers paying cash, and even if they did you would have to assume they had a safe.
I hate to advocate for Big Brother, but if the trend continues the town and some of the retailers may need to think about cameras. They are a lot, lot cheaper to set up than they were ten years ago.
I don't mean to sound like paranoid Ricky but it does seem bay area criminals are finding Danville to be the land of dupes & easy targets.

I want to make sure I am doing everything possible to protect my business and the others around me. Maybe we can learn form these events. Beyond the suggestions noted, it would be nice to know:
1. Were security systems present in these three cases and if so, were they armed? If they were present and armed, this suggests a bit more sophisticated burglar(s).
2. Can we provide a more narrow estimation of time? The article states "...in the evening hours..."
I would also suggest motion sensor or timer controlled lighting as an added deterent.

Bone thugs from the Dougherty Valley affordable housing compound across from the Dougherty Valley high school are driving up local crime.
