San Jose Burglary Suspect Held Without Bail

Posted on in Theft

A burglary suspect has been arrested by San Jose police and is being held without bail in the Santa Clara County Jail. 19-year old Jacob Breschi is alleged to have burglarized thirteen to twenty homes, particularly in south San Jose and the Evergreen neighborhoods. According to the Mercury News, Evergreen has seen a dramatic increase in home invasions in the last year or so.

Burglary of a home residence is a felony and a strike offense. (See Penal Code section 459). First degree burglary is the entering of an inhabited dwelling (a house, apartment, trailer coach, houseboat etc) with the intent to commit a felony. The entering element of this crime may be satisfied if some part of the suspect enters the dwelling, even if minor and only into the outer boundary of the home. A theft need not be intended; rather the intent to commit any felony amounts to the completion of the crime.

A violation of one count of Penal Code section 459 as a first offense carriers a state prison term range of two, four or six years.

The suspect here is alleged to have burglarized up to 20 homes and of stealing personal property, including firearms. The Mercury News further reports residents were home during some of the invasions and could identify the suspect. No word on what the value of all the takings is, but it is estimated to be in the thousands of dollars.
