A suspicious man rang the doorbell on a home in San Carlos Thursday morning in what police said could have been a possible burglary attempt. The subject rang a doorbell at a home on the 200 block of Vine Street around 9:10 a.m., and asked the resident if “Tony” was home, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
The resident told the subject no one by that name lived at that address. The incident was suspicious because there have been a large number of burglaries recently up and down the Peninsula, sheriff’s office officials said. In many of these burglaries, suspects case a home by knocking on the door to determine if anyone is home, and asking an innocent question if someone answers the door. The subject in Thursday’s incident was described as a Hispanic male, around 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall, with a thin build. Deputies were unable to locate him in the area.
