The San Mateo Police Department has been asked to assist with solving a number of crimes in the past several days. A few of their recent calls are listed below.
Local residents have said the neighborhood has been recently plagued by a series of residential burglaries, including one on Huron Ave. that took place on Feb. 6. That suspect broke into the residence through a side garage door. Officers were also asked to assist in investigating two auto burglaries, both of which took place on Feb. 4. The suspect or suspects for these crimes continue to remain at large. Once they are captured they will be booked into the Maguire Jail and will be held in lieu of $20,000 bail or more. As long as the suspect does not have a probation, parole or immigration hold they would be eligible to hire a local bondsman.
Two other vehicles were reported stolen on the afternoon of Feb. 4. The first was a white van with ladders and the second was a black Mustang. Neither vehicle has been recovered. Suspects who are arrested on suspicion of grand theft auto are usually assigned bail amounts in excess of $30,000.
Commercial thefts were also among the incidents called into the SMPD. The stolen items included a bike, a laptop, and a soda was reportedly stolen from a local sandwich shop. Arrests for the above stated incidents have not yet taken place. A spokesperson for the department said anyone with information regarding any of these crimes is asked to call the SMPD in order to provide an anonymous tip.
