Belmont schools ‘shelter in place’ while police pursue burglary suspects
March 05, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Three Belmont schools were placed on lockdown while police pursued two residential burglary suspects Tuesday for around 90 minutes.

At approximately 11:20 a.m., Belmont police responded to the 2500 block of Hallmark Drive after a resident reported someone had just jumped out of his neighbor’s yard over a back fence. Police discovered the home burglarized and spotted the suspect, described as Hispanic with a shaved head, gray sweatshirt and gray pants, on the 2500 block of Carlmont Drive. When an officer tried to contact him, he ran east into a wooded area. Officers established a perimeter and searched with K-9s from Belmont police and a San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office aircraft, according to police.

As a precaution, three Belmont schools, Carlmont and Notre Dame high schools and Immaculate Heart of Mary, were asked to keep their students inside during the search.

This “shelter in place” lasted approximately 30 minutes and students were not in danger, according to police. The shelter in place was lifted at around 12:20 p.m.

During the search, witnesses reported a possible second suspect, an Asian male, with braided hair running behind apartments in the 2500 block of Carlmont Drive. Both suspects remain outstanding and the investigation is on-going.

Anyone with information on this burglary is asked to contact Belmont Police at (650) 595-7400 or the Belmont Police Crime Tip Line at (650) 598-3000. Investigators are particularly interested in anyone who may have security camera video relating to this crime.
