The Belmont Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries that have all occurred in the parking lot at the Belmont Sports Complex. According to Capt.
Pat Halleran of the Belmont Police Dept., the burglaries have occurred on three consecutive Sundays during little league baseball games:
- Sunday 9/8/13 between 2:45-4:40pm. Window smash, purse taken.
Sunday 9/15/13 between 3:15-5:15pm. Driver door lock forced, purse taken.
- Sunday 9/22/13 between 5:00-6:25pm. Passenger door lock forced, wallet taken.
In all of the cases, police say the suspect took either a purse or wallet that had been left in the vehicle by the victim, while they were watching their child play baseball.
The suspect used the victims’ credit cards to purchase many power tools, mainly Milwaukee and Hitachi brand, shortly after breaking into the vehicles. The photo above is from a store security camera at one of the businesses where one of the victim’s credit cards was used.
Police describe the suspect is described as a white male adult, medium height, slim build, with a long pony tail and receding hair (on top). His facial hair has varied between beard, goatee and mustache. Always wears black shirt and black pants, and on one occasion a black hat.
He is possibly associated with a late 1990’s/early 2000’s tan or light Ford Ranger pick-up.
Belmont police are hoping that a member of the public will recognize the suspect. Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Belmont Police at 650-595-7400 or the Belmont Police Crime Tip Line at 650-598-3000.
