Burglar wearing women’s pants sentenced
July 25, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Pedro Serrano

A Half Moon Bay man caught wearing women’s size 0 work pants from the home he entered is now looking at a different type of uniform — that of a prison inmate.

Pedro Mojica Serrano, 21, was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison for residential burglary and illegally possessing a knife while out on bail. He accepted a plea deal in June to settle both cases. He received two years, the maximum allowed under the terms of the deal, and has credit of about six months accumulated while in custody on $55,000 bail. He must serve 85 percent of the remainder.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Serrano the afternoon of Dec. 20, 2013, after responding to reports a family returning from buying a Christmas tree found him inside their Central Avenue living room wearing the 21-year-old daughter’s jacket and rifling through a suitcase. The son locked the man in the room while contacting authorities but he fled out a window and was caught nearby wearing the daughter’s size 0 emergency medical technician pants, according to prosecutors.

Serrano stands 5 feet 6 inches and weighs 120 pounds, according to jail booking records.

Serrano reportedly denied the burglary to sheriff’s deputies and claimed he was just out for a walk.
