PALO ALTO — The Palo Alto Police Department has released the images of multiple suspects seen in the area of what appears to be several home burglaries.

According to Palo Alto Police, “On Thursday, February 9, 2017, at about 11:45 a.m., our 24-hour dispatch center received a call of an attempted residential burglary that had occurred about fifteen minutes earlier at a residence in the 100 block of Roosevelt Circle.”

A man living at the residence reported that he had received a notification on his phone that his home surveillance system had been activated.  The victim reviewed video surveillance of what had activated the warning.

The victim was then able to see two men who had tried to enter his back yard after receiving no answer at the front of the residence.  The two men seen on surveillance tried to pull open a sliding glass door.  Officers responded to the home, but was unable to locate the suspects that were seen trying to gain entry through a rear door of the home.

According to PAPD, “At about 12:15 p.m., we received a call of a residential burglary that had occurred at another home in the same block that morning between 9 a.m. and noon while the residents were out.”

The victim noted to police that the suspects had gained entry through the back glass sliding door to his residence.  The would-be thieves stole personal belongings as well as jewelry and other related items.

The suspects are described as two Hispanic males in their late twenties to early forties.  According to PAPD, “One of them was wearing a distinctive multi-colored “Star Wars” jacket with a hood, black gloves, blue jeans, and red sneakers.”  The second suspect wore a gray hooded sweatshirt over a red shirt, dark gray pants, and gray sneakers.
