A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of burglary on Monday in South San Francisco after someone called police to report someone suspicious walking around her neighbor’s home.
Officers responded around 8 a.m. to the report of a prowler who went toward the rear yard of a home in the 500 block of Orange Avenue, police said.
Officers arrived to find a broken lower-level window at the home and Anthony Jamel Patchell was found climbing out of the home through the broken window, police said.
Patchell, a San Francisco resident, was carrying a duffel bag with items from the home inside. No one was home at the time of the burglary, according to police.
Patchell was taken into custody without incident and booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of burglary and possession of burglary tools.
