PLEASANT HILL -- Police are asking the public's help in locating a suspect they believe is responsible for another residential burglary after he and his teenage accomplice were chased by police Friday.
At 10:45 a.m., Pleasant Hill officers received a call from a resident on Western Hills Drive that two men were seen writing down addresses and walking up to front doors of neighboring houses.
They appeared to be "casing" for burglaries, according to the witness, who provided descriptions of the men and their vehicle as they left the area.
Officers checked the surrounding residential areas and the vehicle, along with the two male occupants, was located on a nearby court.
The men fled on foot when an officer attempted to talk to them and were tracked through numerous backyards.
A 17-year-old male was finally detained near Pleasant View Drive and Oak Park Boulevard.
The driver, 28-year-old Ricardo Guerrero, was not located.
Police said Guerrero is a parolee at large. He has a tattoo along his jaw line that says "California Cut Throat," a red tattoo of a lipstick kiss above his right eye, and numerous tattoos on his neck.
The juvenile had an outstanding warrant and was booked at juvenile hall.
No residential burglaries were reported on Friday, but the black Cadillac matches a suspect vehicle description from a prior residential burglary in Pleasant Hill.
Anyone with information on Guerrero is encouraged to contact the Pleasant Hill Police Department.
