San Diego Police Department Northeastern Division detectives are investigating three burglaries believed to be related, that occurred on March 22 in the northern part of the city of San Diego.
At approximately 12:45 p.m., an unknown suspect entered a residence located in the 18000 block of Cabela Drive in Rancho Bernardo. Once inside, the suspect was immediately confronted by the home owner. The suspect then used an unknown chemical to attack the home owner and then fled. The victim was not able to determine if multiple suspects entered his home. There was no reported property loss as a result of this burglary.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 20-30 years old, 5’7”, with a thin build. The suspect was described as wearing a long sleeved black and blue flannel type shirt and black jeans. Furthermore, the suspect was concealing his face with a black bandana. Prior to the crime, the victim saw a suspicious vehicle, a silver or grey sedan with tinted windows, slowly driving through the neighborhood.
Sometime between 11:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., a burglary occurred in the 11500 block of Bluet Point in Miramar Ranch. In this case, the suspect(s) used a caustic chemical to attack the family’s dog that was inside of the residence. Family members returned home to discover both the injured pet and the ransacked home. Neighbors reported suspicious activity from a similarly described vehicle several days prior to yesterday’s burglary. The HAZMAT team from the San Diego Fire Department responded to assist responding police officers. The property loss in this incident is not known at this time.
And again between 9:55 a.m., and 7:00 p.m., a burglary occurred in the 11700 block of Evergold Street in Scripps Ranch. Family members returned home to find that suspect(s) had forced their way into the residence. Although there was no reported property loss, the home was completely ransacked by the suspect(s). A neighbor looked outside after hearing loud noises, and saw a vehicle matching the parked in front of the victim’s house. The vehicle fled the scene quickly upon seeing neighbors.
