Police are asking residents to be vigilant following a string of burglaries between Nov. 1 and Nov. 7 in Belmont Shore and Alamitos Heights.
There is no suspect information available at this point, but police say the six incidents bear close similarities to one another. All took place between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. and were mostly clustered around the corner of Second Street and Livingston Drive, as well as a group of blocks near the Colorado Lagoon.
According to police, suspects entered the homes through unlocked doors or windows while residents were asleep and there have been no altercations between burglars and residents so far. In some cases, the suspects stole victims cars, according to police.
It’s unclear whether the burglaries were committed by the same person or group of people. So far, “there’s nothing forensically linking the suspect or suspects,” said department spokesperson Richard Mejia. “That’s what the detectives are working on right now.”
Police said they haven’t received any reports of burglaries in these neighborhoods since Nov. 7, but said that they will be increasing patrols in the area in response to the repeated burglaries.
