Detectives released a resident's surveillance video and are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspects in a series of home burglaries in San Leandro that began Friday morning, according to the San Leandro Police Department.
On Friday at 9:45 a.m., police responded to an alarm in the 2100 block of Bradhoff Avenue in the city's Assumption Parrish neighborhood, finding that the home had been burglarized, police said. They were able to view the home’s surveillance video and learned that two suspects entered the rear yard through a side gate and then the home through the rear sliding glass door.
The suspects stole concealable items before fleeing, police said.
The surveillance video shows the suspects are African-American males in their late teens to early 20s, both wearing hooded sweatshirts with the hoods covering their heads, police said. The video shows both suspects arriving in what police believe to be a red, four-door Honda Civic with oxidized paint on the roof.
Beginning at 8:50 p.m. Friday, San Leandro police responded to four more home burglaries in the Bay-O-Vista neighborhood in a 30-minute period, police said. In two of the burglaries, residents were inside their homes when suspects smashed the rear, sliding glass doors, and the suspects did not enter the homes, police said.
The Bay-O-Vista burglaries occurred in the 2200 block of Lakeview Drive, the 1500 block of Regent Drive, the 1800 block of Benedict Drive and the 1900 block of Marineview Drive.
"We need the public’s help in solving these crimes and preventing future ones from occurring," San Leandro police Lt. Robert McManus said. " If you see a suspicious car or person in your neighborhood, please call us and let us investigate."
Police are asking anyone with video surveillance camera systems in the Bay-O-Vista neighborhood to view their videos from Friday evening between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. and report anything suspicious to the Criminal Investigation Division at (510) 577-3230.
