Series of brazen burglaries in San Carlos investigated
SAN CARLOS, Calif. -- A rash of brazen daytime burglaries in San Carlos in the last two days has the sheriff's office on high alert.
Thieves have kicked in doors to get into homes in the 100 block of Northam Avenue, the 900 block of Woodland Avenue, the 1900 block of Eaton Avenue and the 200 block of Clifton Avenue, according to sheriff's Sgt. Kelly Smith.
The suspects are likely knocking on the front doors of homes, possibly pretending to be solicitors, to ascertain whether anyone is home, Smith said.
The burglars appear to prefer side and rear doors, but Smith said front doors shielded from public view have been kicked in as well.
All four crimes occurred between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
Property stolen from the homes includes electronics, jewelry, camera equipment, money and other valuables, according to Smith.
City residents are urged to use vigilance in recognizing suspicious people and vehicles and to call 911.
