Tech-savvy San Carlos homeowner foils burglary attempt of his home

A tech-savvy homeowner was able to foil a burglary of his San Carlos home Wednesday, San Mateo County sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said.

The homeowner equipped his property with motion-sensor surveillance cameras that notify his smartphone when activity is detected, and he received such alerts about 11:12 a.m. while he was away from home. However, he was able to see an unknown suspect lurking inside his residence, Rosenblatt said.

The homeowner immediately called 911 and sheriff’s deputies arrived in the 400 block of De Anza Avenue and surrounded the house and ordered any occupants inside to come out, Rosenblatt said. No one came out.

Deputies then entered the residence and located two suspects who were reportedly trying to steal electronics. They were arrested.

One of the suspects was identified as Cristhian Juarez-Medrano, 18, of Redwood City and the other suspect was a 17-year-old male.

Juarez-Medrano was booked into County Jail on burglary and conspiracy charges and the juvenile was booked on the same charges into the San Mateo County Youth Services Center, Rosenblatt said.
