San Mateo and Hillsborough police located and then lost a burglary suspect who was interrupted at one San Mateo home Friday and might have cased other homes in Hillsborough, according to police.
San Mateo police were called to a home in the 600 block of Edgewood Road about 12:20 p.m. for a reported interrupted burglary.
The suspects were already gone when police arrived, but around the same time Hillsborough police intercepted and pursued a white Chevy Malibu speeding onto northbound Interstate 280. The suspect in the vehicle discarded items as he drove.
About 1:15 p.m., Daly City police located an abandoned car in San Francisco, near Parque and Esquina drives in the Sunnydale neighborhood, and identified it as the suspect vehicle in the burglary, police said.
Hillsborough police are now investigating whether two door-knock incidents in their city that occurred around the same time, in the 500 block of El Arroyo and the 100 block of Eucalyptus, might be linked to the same suspect, police said.
