SOLANA BEACH — Sheriff’s deputies were on the lookout Wednesday for the man who cut through a window screen to gain access to a Solana Beach apartment and got away with a man’s cell phone.

The suspect appeared to have been “heavily intoxicated” when he broke into the residence in the 100 block of Acacia near Plaza Street around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday, San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Christine Robbins said.

The resident was home during the break-in, but he was not injured, according to Robbins.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his 40s with dark hair and a mustache. He was wearing dark clothing.
