Residential burglary suspect arrested
Submitted By San Leandro PD
On Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 11:00am, a resident in the 900 block of Sybil Ave. was in his home when he was alerted to the sound of breaking glass from a nearby residence. Shortly thereafter, he believed his home was being burglarized too. Upon calling the police, officers responded to the area and saw a man running from the yard, carrying a pillow case over his shoulder, weighted down with stolen items inside.
The subject failed to stop for the officer and ran into the nearby residential neighborhood. Additional police officers responded, including a team from the SLPD Canine Unit. After searching several residential yards, sheds and garages for the suspect, he was apprehended in the rear yard of a residence on San Rafael St. Lt. McManus was proud of the community, stating, ÒWithout the quick action by some of our residents, there is a strong likelihood that this suspect may have escaped and burglarized other homes. This is a prime example of how successful we are as a police department when our residents unite to help us fight crime.Ó
The suspect, a 19 year old resident of Oakland, who is on probation for burglary and grand theft, sustained minor injuries during his arrest. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and later transported to the San Leandro Police Jail. He has been arrested on suspicion of committing a residential burglary and resisting arrest. He will be arraigned in the Alameda County Superior Court on Monday, October 21st. The suspectÕs name is being withheld, pending additional investigation by police detectives.
