The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office has issued an alert to San Carlos residents regarding a recent rash of residential burglaries.
Sheriff's deputies say that in the last 48 hours, four San Carlos homes have been burglarized. In each case the residences have sustained forced entry via door kicks. Property stolen includes electronics, jewelry, camera equipment, money and other various items of value.
The burglarized homes are located in the 100 block of Northam, 900 block Woodland, 1900 block Eaton and 200 block Clifton, and they are occurring during the daytime; between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
The Sheriff's Office is strongly urging residents to be vigilant in recognizing suspicious persons and vehicles. They 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.
Sheriff's deputies are urging residents to beware of solicitors or other people making contact at their homes. T The Sheriff's Office asks that ANY suspicious activities or vehicles be immediately reported by calling 911.
