The four residential burglaries that have occurred in San Carlos over the past two days have all had a common point of entry--the victims' doors have been kicked in. And although the crimes have been committed in San Carlos, the Belmont Police Department is strongly urging local residents to be vigilant and report suspicious persons and vehicles.
According to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, property stolen from the San Carlos homes includes electronics, jewelry, camera equipment, money and other various items of value. The burglarized residences are located in the 100 block Northam, 900 block Woodland, 1900 block Eaton and 200 block Clifton.
Sheriff's deputies say suspects are likely knocking on front doors first, as means of determining whether the occupants are home, and then going around to side and rear doors, which appear to be the preferred area of entry. However, front doors which are primarily secluded from the street are being kicked in.
Belmont police and the Sheriff's deputies urge residents to report any suspicious activities or vehicles immediately by calling 911.
"Together we can stop these criminals before they target our neighborhoods," said Lt. Patrick Halleran of the Belmont Police Department.
