La Jolla Crime Report

Residents thwart burglary in progress at their Bird Rock home

A home invasion and attempted burglary took place approximately 3:30 p.m. March 12, in the 5400 block of Bellevue Avenue in Bird Rock.

One of the residents came home from work that afternoon to find an intruder in the house, reportedly filling his suitcases with items to steal, although nothing was taken.

After the resident wrestled with the intruder, the burglar escaped to a white SUV parked in the alley next to the home, where a driver was waiting, and sped away. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 6 feet 1 inch tall, with reddish “scraggly” hair. The resident recorded the license plate number and gave it to police, who are investigating. u
