Four San Carlos homes hit in apparent burglary spree
June 07, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Four homes in San Carlos were looted Tuesday in what police believe might be the work of one criminal.

The homes targeted are in the 2300 block of Brittan Avenue, the 2600 block of Eaton Avenue, the 2700 block of Bromley Drive and the 100 block of Rogers Avenue, according to police.

One local resident described leaving home recently and encountering a man walking toward the front of the house, police said.

The man quickly asked the resident if a woman named Catherine still lived at that address, police said. When he was told no, he turned and left in a small white vehicle.

The man was described as white or Hispanic and in his mid-20s or 30s. He was wearing a white shirt and a tan hat that covered his collar-length curly brown hair, according to police. His car was a four-door Honda or Toyota.

San Carlos has been a hot zone for “door-knock” burglaries in recent months. According to police, criminals seek out residences with nobody home and once they confirm a home is empty, they strike. If someone answers the door, they sometimes ask if a random person might live there.

Police are warning residents to be on the lookout for this type of crime.
