Cops Release Redwood City Burglary Video

Redwood City police hope the video will lead to an arrest in the Aug. 30 heist.

Redwood City police are asking for the public's help in identifying a burglar who was captured on video breaking into a home last month.

The burglary occurred in the 1100 block of Lyons Street at around 1 p.m. on Aug. 30, according to Redwood City police.

Private security cameras filmed the burglar ringing a front doorbell, and then entering the home through a rear sliding-glass door that was left unlocked. Electronic items and jewelry were stolen, police said.

The male suspect appears to be between 16 and 21 years old and about 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 9 inches tall. He has a medium build, black hair and brown eyes.

The video footage can be viewed online at: http://vimeo.com/49685183.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Redwood City police Detective Dave Stahler at (650) 780-7620. Callers wishing to remain anonymous can call (800) 222-8477.

This video makes my skin crawl. Seriously. My house got broken into twice in one month when I bought my house in March here in Redwood City. Nothing is worse than having your home violated like that. I'll be on the look out for this guy and all suspicions persons lurking by my home and other people's homes. He will get caught eventually, I just know he will!
