SAN FRANCISCO—On Thursday, November 16, the San Francisco Police Department announced suspects involved in an Alamo Square burglary have been arrested. The SFPD reported that on November 14 at approximately 10 a.m., a vehicle burglary occurred in the area of Alamo Square.
A description of the suspect vehicle was broadcast over police radio and at approximately 10:17 a.m., members of the SFPD Street Crimes Plain Clothes Unit spotted a vehicle matching the description in the area of Potrero Avenue and Division Street.
The vehicle stopped in the area of 24th Street and Alabama Street and met with an unknown male, later identified as Jose Carreno, 51, who appeared to be purchasing items from an occupant in the suspect vehicle. After the suspect vehicle left, officers detained Carreno. Items from the initial vehicle burglary were recovered and Carreno was placed under arrest and booked at San Francisco County Jail on charges of buying or receiving stolen property (496(a) PC) and conspiracy (182(a) PC).

A search of the vehicle yielded a firearm, a large amount of U.S. Currency, burglary tools and more items that had been stolen in the initial vehicle burglary. The recovered items were returned to the auto burglary victims.

“I want to thank our officers for their diligent police work that led to three arrests and the recovery of the victims’ property,” Chief Bill Scott said. “We will not tolerate people breaking into vehicles in our city. We will continue to employ strategies such as bait car operations, various types of police officer deployments, and use of video surveillance technologies to combat car burglaries and fencing operations that profit off of car burglaries. Anyone who makes the poor decision to commit these crimes in San Francisco will be held accountable.”
