FREMONT -- Police are asking the public's help to identify a man suspected of burglarizing a Fremont home on Wednesday.
The suspect was seen on surveillance video, breaking into the house on Amorok Way about 10:20 a.m. Video shows him hitting and repositioning the camera with a piece of wood trim found in the yard, police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said.
After repositioning the camera, the suspect entered the home by kicking in the side garage door. An alarm in the home likely caused the suspect to change plans, Bosques said. Video shows him walking from the garage and toward Paseo Padre Parkway.
The suspect got into a four-door silver or beige, possibly American-made car, and drove westbound on Amorok Way past the home, then turned around and sped eastbound toward Paseo Padre Parkway.
The suspect was described as a heavyset black man, late 20s to early 30s, with short black hair, black mustache and black "chin-strap" beard up to his lower lip. He wore a baggy olive-green T-shirt with a large photo-type logo on the front, black pants and black or white sneakers or black sandals with white socks.
Anyone with information about the suspect or the burglary is asked to call police at 510-790-6900 or email Wjohnson@fremont.gov.
