San Bruno man arrested for possession of stolen items linked to residential 'door-knock' burglaries
April 08, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Hillsborough police arrested a San Bruno man for possession of stolen property on Sunday morning after a resident reported a suspicious person knocking at the front door.

The man knocked on a door in the 600 block of Darrell Road, off of Chateau Drive near Interstate 280, just before 7:30 a.m., police Sgt. Nelson Corteway said.

Police arrived and detained the man as he was getting back into his car, and determined that he was on probation. A search of his car turned up stolen property linked to a recent burglary at the home where he had parked, Corteway said.

The man was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and for violation of the terms of his probation. Police identified him as 31-year-old Federico Horny.

Some items seized from Horny's car are believed to be linked to other thefts in the area. Hillsborough police are working to identify the owners of the property.

Horny was driving a silver 1991 Toyota two-door pickup truck at the time of his arrest. Anyone who may have seen him or his vehicle should contact Hillsborough police at (650) 375-7470.
