According to Santa Cruz County sheriff's deputy spokesman Ryan Kennedy, the meeting's purpose is to update the community about the recent break-ins and help organize neighborhood safety efforts.
Signs about the burglaries have been posted at Hutchinson and Summit roads and at Highway 17 and Summit Road to further alert the community.
On Oct. 18, the victim of a Sept. 27 burglary on Stagecoach Road in the Los Gatos Mountains reported another similar incident that took place the afternoon of Oct. 11 on Brush Road and Highway 17.
During the first incident reported to Los Gatos Patch by the victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, dogs were beaten and several valuable items were stolen during the violent burglary at the end of Stagecoach Road.
During the second break-in, the same suspects, believed to be African American, are said to have stolen thousands of dollars in electronics, antique jewelry and even a shotgun, she said.
The woman said the incident took place at around 1 p.m. and the suspects drove away in an older, reddish Sedan.
Kennedy said attending the meeting will be Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Freitas.
Santa Clara County sheriff's Sgt. spokesman Kurtis Stenderup said two detectives from the agency's West Valley Division will be attending the meeting. They are Marc Lehmann and Ryan Schaefers.
The detectives will give a presentation on crime prevention and public safety tips, ID theft, burglary trends, scams and updates on recent cases, Stenderup said.
