Heritage Neighborhood – Possible Burglary Suspect Casing Properties

Monday (October 31st) a resident of the Heritage District noticed an African-American man with a medium build loitering around the corner near Sutter and Virginia Streets around 11AM. He watched her get in her car and drive away.

She had a bad feeling and so drove back moments later and found the same man knocking on her front door. He saw her. She circled the block again and when she came back to her house he was nowhere to be found. She believed he was casing
the property.
