‘PetSmart burglars’ linked to more crimes
February 27, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

San Mateo police detectives have linked the “PetSmart Burglars,” 25-year-old San Jose residents Ashley Kirk and Juan Ortega-Ramos, to three San Mateo residential burglaries committed last summer.

In January 2014, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest of these suspects for their connection to several residential burglaries. Through their investigation, the Sheriff’s Office Investigations Bureau learned the suspects were associated with PetSmart in San Carlos, and that the suspects had targeted residences where the families were on vacation and had boarded their pets at PetSmart. During continued follow-up, San Mateo police detectives became aware that these suspects may have also been involved in residential burglary activity in San Mateo.

Kirk and Ortega-Ramos were identified as suspects responsible for three separate residential burglaries in August of 2013 that occurred on the 700 block of Sequoia Avenue, 900 block of South Norfolk Street and the 1600 block of South Norfolk Street, according to police.
