DA: Burglary suspect wore woman’s clothes
December 24, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Pedro Serrano

A Half Moon Bay family returning home from buying a Christmas tree found a surprise in their upstairs living room on Friday — an unknown man rifling through a suitcase and wearing the 21-year-old daughter’s jacket.

The quick-thinking adult children locked the man in the room and called 911 but he escaped out of a second-story window. A deputy found him several minutes later near the Central Avenue home wearing the daughter’s size 0 emergency medical technician pants, said District Attorney Steve Wagtaffe.

The man, 21-year-old Pedro Mojica Serrano, was positively identified by the family as the person they found in their home about 1:30 p.m. Dec. 20. Serrano denied being involved and claimed he was just out for a walk.

Deputies arrested Serrano on suspicion of residential burglary and Monday he pleaded not guilty. He asked for a court-appointed attorney and did not waive his right to a speedy preliminary hearing. He returns to court Jan. 7.

Bail was set at $50,000 and he remains in custody.
