San Carlos, CA - February 12, 2013 - San Carlos has experienced four residential burglaries in the last 48 hours. All involved residences have sustained forced entry via door kicks.
Property stolen includes electronics, jewelry, camera equipment, money and other various items of value. The victim residences are located in: 100 block of Northam, 900 block of Woodland, 1900 block of Eaton and 200 block of Clifton.
The Sheriff's Office is strongly urging residents to be vigilant in recognizing suspicious persons and vehicles. Suspects are likely knocking on front doors first, as means of determining whether the occupants are home. Side and rear doors appear to be preferred. However, front doors which are primarily secluded from the street are being kicked in.
Beware of solicitors or other subjects making contact at your home. These burglaries are occurring during the daytime; between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. The Sheriff's Office asks that any suspicious activities or vehicles be immediately reported by calling 911.
