POWAY, Calif. (KGTV) – Authorities in Poway have identified a suspect in a series of brazen robberies and vandalism that were caught on camera earlier this week.

Cory Miracle, 33, is a suspect in a "hot prowl" residential burglary and spray-painting cars along Somerset Road on Thursday, Jan. 20, according to a tweet by the San Diego County Sheriff's Office. They said, "based on his history he may be armed with a knife."

Anyone who sees him is urged to call 911.

Poway resident Daniel Jestand showed surveillance video to ABC 10News Thursday of Miracle walking through Jestand’s home grabbing belongings, coming back for more, all while Jestand’s family, including three children, slept inside.
