Car burglary victim helps deputies catch suspect

By the Daily Post staff

Car burglars should realize that people might be watching them when they break into cars.

That happened at 7:19 a.m. today (July 3) in the 400 block of 2nd Avenue in North Fair Oaks, or unincorporated Redwood City.

The owner of the car watched the burglar break into the car, and chased after him, but ultimately lost sight of the subject.

But the owner gave San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies a description of the suspect. Deputies found the suspect — Juan Saavedra, 21 — in the 200 block of 3rd Avenue.

The victim identified Saavedra as the car burglar, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies searched Saavedra and found an unlabeled bottle containing suspected medications.

Saavedra was booked into the San Mateo County Maguire Jail in Redwood City for auto burglary and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
