Another daytime burglary occurs in Carmel Valley


Another daytime burglary occurred in the Torrey Hills area of Carmel Valley on May 15 between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Police said the burglary may possibly be linked to a burglary series (of at least seven homes in the area) where suspects may be casing and watching residents leave their homes.

Suspects in this series are using rocks or bricks to break rear windows and doors, then mainly stealing money and jewelry, according to the San Diego Police Department Northwestern Division.

On May 15, between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., a home on the 4600 block of Corte Mar de Corazon was burglarized. The suspect(s) used a rock to break the rear glass door to gain entry to the home. A resident of the home was in the upstairs bedroom during the break-in and got a description of the suspect before he fled. Jewelry was stolen, according to police.

The suspect was described as a white male, 18-25 years old, “college-age,” 5’ 9” to 5’ 11” tall, and thin build.

Other recent burglaries occurred at the 5000 block of Manor Ridge where two homes were burglarized, one on April 30 between 9:45 a.m. and noon, and the other on May 7, between approximately 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. The suspect(s) used rocks to break windows or doors to gain entry to the homes in this area, police said.
