SAN JOSE — The San Jose Police Department is asking the public’s help in tracking down an auto-theft suspect who was last seen stealing a package near Muller Place in San Jose.
According to Albert Morales of the San Jose Police Department, a package theft, residential burglary, and auto theft all occurred between 10:30 AM and 5:45 PM on January 8 at two neighboring residences.
Video surveillance showed a male suspect believed to be in his late 20s/early 30s walking up and down the neighborhood looking for packages. He is shown walking past the first residence, then returning later with a scarf and dark clothing to hide his identity. He is then seen walking away carrying a package taken from the front stoop.

A second residence was burglarized and a vehicle belonging to the occupant stolen.
