REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) — A Redwood City man has been arrested in connection with more than a dozen burglaries in Redwood City and Woodside, police said.

Justin Mitchell, 26, was initially arrested this week in connection with a vehicle burglary in Redwood City that occurred on Tuesday, according to Redwood City police.

The car in that burglary, parked on the 3600 block of Haven Avenue, had its window shattered and a purse containing several credit cards was stolen, police said.

Mitchell, a parolee, was identified as a suspect by surveillance video showing a vehicle registered to him.

When police contacted Mitchell at his home on the 2400 block of Edith Avenue, a search turned up narcotics, items purchased with stolen credit cards and several stolen items taken from other burglaries, according to police.

Investigators have now connected him to more than a dozen burglaries, including a number of vehicle and residential burglaries that occurred in the town of Woodside over the Columbus Day weekend, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

The investigation continues, and anyone with information is asked to call Redwood City or Woodside police.
