Police arrest burglary suspect found wearing stolen clothes

A transient man was arrested Monday morning after police found him wearing clothes he allegedly stole from a South San Francisco home.

Around 9 a.m., officers responded to Country Club Drive after several residents reported seeing a man wandering the neighborhood and looking into houses, police said.

When officers arrived, they located a man at a business in the 300 block of El Camino Real in nearby San Bruno who matched the description given by the witnesses. He was identified as 26-year-old Antonio Matier, a transient from Oakland.

After investigating the incident, officers determined Matier had taken items of clothing from a garage in the 400 block of Granada Drive. He then discarded some of his own clothes and wore the stolen items, according to police.

The owner of the stolen items was able to identify the clothing taken from their garage.

Officers arrested Matier on suspicion of residential burglary, parole violation and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.

He was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility.
