Hi Mountain View,
We’re calling on you once again to help us find a man who stole a woman’s purse and then later burglarized that same woman’s home and stole her car.
On Jan. 11, sometime between 8:30 am and 11 am, the victim drove with a family member to the 500 block of Showers Drive. The woman stated the car was locked when she left it. During that time frame, the suspect, described as a man between 30 and 35 years old, between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches tall with brown eyes and brown hair, broke into the car and stole the victim’s purse.
The woman returned to her home in Mountain View after reporting the auto burglary to us to find that her home had been burglarized, with someone taking another vehicle the family owned — a 2001 silver Lexus.
We believe the suspect pictured below is the individual who committed both of these crimes. If you see him, please call 650-903-6395 and ask to speak with Officer Ruben Gonzalez.
*Please note, as of this time, this is the best image we have of the suspect. We will upload more if they become available.*
