SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego police are investigating whether several burglaries in the Point Loma area are connected.
Between September 17 and September 22, someone broke into four different houses.
Two homes were burglarized near Moana Drive and Hill Street, another near Whittier Street and Willow street by Point Loma High School, and another on Evergreen Street near Midway Drive and Rosecrans Street.
Police say the suspects broke windows, cut through screens, and found unlocked doors and windows to get inside the homes. Most victims reported electronics and jewelry as the main things stolen.
John Decker's home was burglarized, and his mother lost thousands of dollars' worth of jewelry.
"I was thinking everything in my house was gone," Decker said. "I’ve never been robbed before.”
Police say in all but one of the burglaries on Moana Drive, the suspects appeared to be solicitors or asking for directions, and the burglaries happened between 9:30 a.m. and noon.
Police were able to get a description of the suspects who broke into Decker's home thanks to a neighbors security camera.
Hispanic, Asian, or light skinned
African American with a ponytail, wearing a baseball cap and glasses.
Police say they were possibly driving a green station wagon with black rims (possibly 90’s Honda) with a white sticker on rear driver side window.
