Police seeking burglar who hit two banks in under an hour

Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CNS) - Authorities asked the public Tuesday for help in identifying a burglar who broke into and ransacked three East County businesses in less than an hour.

The spree of break-ins along two La Mesa thoroughfares began shortly after 9:30 p.m. Monday. The thief or thieves first forced entry to an auto body shop in the 8100 block of Parkway Drive, then targeted a bicycle retailer and a next-door Starbucks in the 8400 block of Fletcher Parkway, Sgt. Angela DeSarro said.

During the second break-in, a surveillance camera captured images of a man with a shaved head in a white shirt and gloves looting the premises.

Total losses remained undetermined, DeSarro said.

Anyone with information about the burglaries was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
