San Mateo police’s crime reduction unit arrests burglar
January 08, 2014, 05:00 AM

An East Palo Alto man is in jail for numerous theft-related charges after a Predictive Policing operation by the San Mateo Police Department’s Crime Reduction Unit Sunday, Jan. 5, according to police.

The man, Kevin Kipler, 25, was arrested after officers spotted him suspiciously drive around different areas, exit his car and peer into windows of several parked vehicles. His target was the area of Seal Point Park off J. Hart Clinton Drive, an area with recent vehicle burglaries, according to police.

During an enforcement stop, officers found items related to recent vehicle thefts in San Mateo and further suspect him of residential burglary and fraudulent use of an access card. Follow-up at his residence identified property from more than a dozen thefts from vehicles all over the Bay Area, according to police.

Officers used Predictive Policing practices which helps officers study and identify crime trends and work with other resources and agencies to locate high-potential areas for criminal activity based on trends, according to police.
