The two men, caught on surveillance video, are suspects in at least one home burglary last month. On Dec. 29, police say the men broke into a newly renovated home in the 2800 block of Beech Street and stole a $5,000 Bertazzoni stainless steel stove. While inside, they appeared to know where the cameras were and pushed them toward the ceiling, but not before the cameras captured their faces.
“We want these people behind bars. We can’t have us, or somebody's house or neighbors having this happen,” said Juan Sanchez of Blue Centurion Homes, the company that flipped the home. He said he is changing the locks because he says it’s the second time the company has had a stove stolen at one of their renovated houses.
“It could be somebody who knows the renovator, it could be somebody who knows the sales, selling the home, could be the company that sells the range, because it’s the same company we buy from," he said.
San Diego Police Detective Dan Craft says the high-end appliance is large, difficult to move and unique. He says someone out there knows what happened.
“This was a recently renovated home, so I a speaking with the contractor. I am speaking with everybody that’s in the neighborhood, talking to other people that possibly could have been out and about so we make sure that all leads are tied down," Craft said.
