Belmont police investigators released Thursday a composite sketch of a suspect, who may be connected to several recent residential burglaries.
At approximately 11:20 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, an unknown suspect knocked on front door of a home on the 1100 block of Chula Vista Drive. When the resident, who was in a different part of the home, didn’t respond, the suspect went around to backyard. The resident then saw the suspect in the backyard and called 911. The suspect, who apparently realized someone was home, fled over a fence on the south side of the property. An extensive search was conducted by Belmont police with assistance from a Burlingame police K9, but the suspect was not found, according to police.
The suspect was described as a medium complexion male, possible in his late teens, 5 feet 10 inches, 140 pounds, wearing a light gray hoodie, black pants, black rimmed glasses and black gloves. No suspect vehicle was seen or heard, according to police.
Later that afternoon, a resident on the 1200 block of Chula Vista Drive reported that their home had been burglarized sometime during the day. In addition, two homes on the 900 block of North Road were also burglarized the same day. It is unknown if the suspect in the sketch is connected to the other three, but investigators believe he is probably connected to the other Chula Vista Drive burglary, according to police.
Anyone with information on this suspect and/or any of these burglaries are asked to contact Belmont police at (650) 595-7400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
