Burglar robbed home, spent the night

Police released photos on Friday of a man who they believe broke entry into a Mountain View home where he slept inside and stole property from last week.

The man entered a home in the 200 block of Church Street sometime between 3 p.m. last Monday and noon Tuesday, then slept inside overnight, according to police. He left the home Tuesday with a coat, ski pants and two sleeping bag straps, police said.

Police believe the same man attempted to enter the same home again shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday, but he was unable to enter because repairs had been made to an interior door.

The residents found images of a man on video footage taken through the home’s surveillance system that police are releasing to the public in an effort to locate him.

The man is described as in his mid-20s and about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing around 150 pounds with facial hair, police said. In the images he is seen wearing a white long-sleeved hoodie, white pants with a black belt and white shoes with black stripes, according to police.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Mountain View police at (650) 903-6395.
