Oceanside Police Warn of 'Hot Prowl' Burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Oceanside police today warned residents in a neighborhood near Camp Pendleton about two "hot prowl" burglaries.

The crimes -- "hot prowl" means the burglar is in the house at the same time as at least one resident -- occurred Tuesday night or early this morning on Via Malaguena and Manteca Drive in northeastern Oceanside, according to Sgt. Kelan Poorman.

In both cases, the intruder or intruders got in through an unlocked ground-floor door or window, Poorman said. In one burglary, something was taken from the bedroom of a sleeping child, he said.

Police did not say what was taken in either burglary.

Police urged residents to be on the lookout for strangers and unfamiliar vehicles, and to keep their doors and windows locked and their yards lighted at night.
