Natomas Buglars Being Sought

The Sacramento Police Department is releasing a surveillance photo of a suspect who attempted to commit a burglary in North Natomas.

On Monday, December 20th, 2010, at approximately 1:00 p.m., a home located near Natomas Boulevard and Club Center Drive was victimized by a subject attempting to burglarize the residence.  The victim had a home surveillance system which captured an image of the suspect (see photo below).  The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, in his 20-30's, 5'10-6'0, 170-210 lbs, short black hair, mustache and goatee, wearing a white t-shirt, black jacket, and black pants.  It appears the suspect knocked on the victim's door and when there was no answer he forced entry from the rear of the house, but fled when the alarm sounded.  

Police would like to alert the neighborhood of this type of burglary as there have been other burglaries in the Natomas area with similar entry methods since December 18th.  It is believed that the suspect (s) are knocking on the victim's door to see if anyone is home and when there is no answer, the suspect (s) force their way into the residence.  The burglaries have occurred at various hours of the day.  In one of the burglaries two suspects were seen and described as a male Hispanic, 20's, 5'11-6'0, 185 lbs, facial hair, wearing dark clothing and a male White, in his 20's, 5'9, 145 lbs, shaved head wearing a dark colored sweatshirt.  It is unknown at this time if all these burglaries are connected.
