Mountain View: Police release video of suspect in smash & grab burglary

- Mountain View police are seeking a suspect in a smash-and-grab burglary in a Starbucks coffee shop parking lot on Monday.

Police today released video of the burglary, which occurred around 9:55 a.m. Monday in the parking lot on Pear Avenue off of North Shoreline Boulevard.

The suspect, a tall black man in his early 20s who wore gray pants and a gray sweatshirt with white  tennis shoes, can be seen in the video walking up to a red Nissan Leaf.

He then looks around and pulls his sleeve over his right hand, then smashes the back windshield of the car and grabs a backpack, which police said contained a laptop.

The suspect then walks over to a newer-model Hyundai Sonata that drove away. Police are asking anyone who recognizes the man or car, or has any other information about the case, to call Officer Doerres at (650)
