During the last several weeks the San Luis Obispo Police Department has been investigating a series of daytime residential burglaries. Many of the items being stolen include: jewelry, computers, and other electronics, cash, and many other items of value. The hours of these burglaries have been taking place sometime between 7:00 a.m., and 2:00 p.m.
According to some reports it is believed that the suspects in these crimes are knocking on the door of their intended victims to see if anyone is home. If they are contacted they may ask for someone who does not live at the address. When they feel it is safe the suspects will enter the residence by forcing open the rear doors and windows, or by finding ones that are left open.
Since December 2012, six daytime residential burglaries have been reported that were similar in nature. The most recent occurred in the 2300 block of Flora. During this incident the homeowner interrupted two suspects who were in the process of burglarizing the residence.
These suspects were described as following:
Suspect #1: Male Hispanic adult in his late 20’s with black hair and a black moustache wearing a white t-shirt and black baggy pants.
Suspect #2: Male Hispanic adult, wearing a white t-shirt and black pants.
We ask that anyone who sees or suspects any suspicious activity, particularly in residential neighborhoods during daytime hours, to immediately notify the San Luis Obispo Police Department. We also ask that you not confront anyone suspected of committing any illegal activity. The police department would also like to remind its residents to lock their doors and windows when they are not at home, and to keep items of value out of plain view whenever possible.
Anyone with information regarding these or any other crimes in the City of San Luis Obispo is encouraged to notify the police department or Crime Stoppers.
