A 21-year-old San Jose man was arrested in Daly City on Monday on suspicion of stealing from gym lockers on the Peninsula and may be linked to similar crimes in the South Bay, police said today.
An officer working in the area of the Serramonte Center saw a suspicious car near the Macy’s department store entrance shortly after 8 p.m. Monday, according to Daly City police.
As the officer approached, the man sped away in the car, recklessly driving through the parking lot, police said.
The man eventually stopped and the officer conducted a search that uncovered property belonging to seven people in addition to numerous purses, gift cards and clothing, according to police.
The man and his passenger had allegedly burglarized gym lockers in South San Francisco and Redwood City before the officer approached them, police said.
The man, whose name was not immediately available, was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, forging a name on an access card, burglary, conspiracy and possession of burglary tools.
The pair may be linked to other locker burglaries in the South Bay, according to police.
Charges are still pending against the passenger, police said.
