Police believe the burglaries occurred between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the 700 block of Portola Avenue and the 1200 block of North Everett Street.
In the Everett burglary, thieves broke through the home’s rear door, which activated an alarm system, according to Glendale spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.
But she said thieves tore the alarm panel off the wall and placed it in running water in a bathroom.
Detectives are still trying to determine the amount of loss in the burglaries.
