Home Burglary Caught on Surveillance in San Jose

Posted on in Theft

Recently, burglaries have been prevalent in the residential areas of San Jose. Last week, a San Jose teenager was been arrested after he was caught on a home surveillance video. The home surveillance video caught the teenager attacking the residents, including two women protecting a baby.

Burglary is a crime on the rise in some parts of San Jose. Particularly hard hit have been the Almaden Valley and Evergreen neighborhoods as police are stretched thin and being replaced by Community Service Officers or CSOs. Some burglars have become more brazen, entering homes at night they know are occupied.

In this case the Mercury News reports that the suspects broke into an Evergreen home and searched the home up and down. Two residents were at home and locked themselves in a bedroom. They had a young baby with them. The Mercury further reports that the suspects (one a teenager) attempted to break into the room, armed with knives. They were able to punch a hole in the door and made threats to injure the residents. They also disconnected the landline telephone to the home.

The whole scene was caught on the home surveillance camera system, which led to the arrest of one of the suspects, who is now detained in juvenile hall. The police are searching for the other suspect.

Burglary is a serious felony and strike offense. The prison term for this offense is four to six years and is a strike offense pursuant to California Three Strikes Law.
