SAN MATEO, Calif. —
Law enforcement officers were attempting Wednedsay to locate one or more suspects who burglarized half a dozen businesses in San Mateo.
The burglaries occurred within a 1.5-mile radius near the intersection of 25th Avenue and El Camino Real late last Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to police.
In three of the incidents, one or more burglars attempted to enter the businesses but did not steal anything, according to police.
Investigators say the pattern of trying to enter the businesses through back entrances and the targeting of cash and portable items show that a single suspect or group is likely behind the crimes.
Police are reviewing surveillance images of one of the suspected burglars and are releasing those photos.
Police are working with merchants on ways to prevent crime.
Business owners are encouraged to secure doors and windows with high-quality locks or burglar-resistant glass, to install lighting and alarm systems.
Anyone with information about last week's burglaries is asked to call San Mateo police at (650) 522-7650. Anonymous messages may be left at (650) 522-7676 or texted to (650) 262-3473.
