SAN JOSE (BCN) — The San Jose Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying two suspects who were caught on surveillance video burglarizing a San Jose home.

The burglary took place on Aug. 13 at 1:50 p.m. at a residence in the 2600 block of Casey Way. The video shows a woman carrying a guitar approach the residence and knock on the front door. Police believe that the guitar was to be used as a distraction or cop out in case someone answered the door.

According to police, the woman acted as a lookout while a man entered the backyard and broke into the house through the sliding glass door.

Both suspects were described as Hispanic and in their mid-20s, according to police. The man had a mustache and tattoos on his neck and arms and was seen in the video footage wearing a black T-shirt and dark sweat pants with a white stripe on the sides. The woman was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt, gray leggings, and flip-flops.

According to police, both suspects fled in a late model red Chevy Camaro, which is visible throughout the surveillance video footage.

Police are asking anyone who may have information related to this incident to contact detective sergeant Mike Montonye of the SJPD Burlary Department at (408) 277-4401 or via the anonymous tip line at (408) 947-7867.

Persons providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects may be eligible for a cash reward from the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers.
