FREMONT, Calif. —
Fremont police are searching for a suspected burglar connected with a series of home break-ins with the latest on Tuesday morning, a police spokeswoman said.
Lawrence Nero, 25, has a $1 million warrant out for his arrest in connection with three burglaries in Fremont since Feb. 25, Fremont police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said.
Police believe Nero is possibly connected with other burglaries in the city and nearby areas.
Nero allegedly burglarized a house on Meyer Court on March 1 before leading officers in a car chase near Paseo Padre Parkway and Isherwood Way.
During the chase, Nero allegedly dumped an unregistered maroon Buick Regal and fled from police on foot, jumping fences on Fairfax Court before police lost him, Bosques said.
In the abandoned car, police found property from a residential burglary in the 35000 block of Armour Way taken on Feb. 25, Bosques said.
Nero was spotted again in Fremont on Tuesday after a burglary at a home in the 43800 block of Moray Street, Bosques said.
Nero, whose last known address was in Hayward but is not believed to be living there, is believed to follow a certain pattern.
He allegedly first rings the front door bell of a home during a time when he believes no one is home, usually between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., Bosques said.
After no one responds, he jumps the fence and enters the house through a back door.
During Tuesday's break-in, witnesses told police that Nero allegedly had longer facial hair was wearing orange shoes.
He is overall described as a black man with a muscular build standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall with short hair and a beard.
He has been seen wearing a dark blue sweatshirt and jeans or gray sweatpants.
Bosques said Moray Street neighbors captured the break-in on a surveillance camera and have turned the footage over to police, who plan to release the images to the public.
Anyone with information about Nero's whereabouts is asked to call the Fremont Police Department at (510) 790-6800, ext. 3.
