Four Rancho Bernardo homes have been burglarized through their garage this week.

Rancho Bernardo resident Ray Castanon says he now puts a dead bolt on his garage to secure the door. He is one of at least four homeowners affected in his community.

According to San Diego police, the thief is likely getting into the garages by using a wire coat hangar to detach the safety latches of power door openers. The garage doors can then be opened manually. 

Castanon says he had $2,000 worth of power tools stolen from his garage. He says his neighbor was also burglarized of electronics items that were stored in his garage.
