Law enforcement officials are on the lookout for a man suspected of a pair of attempted burglaries in downtown Felton on the evening of Wednesday, April 23.

At approximately 8:55 p.m., deputies responded to a report of a prowler who attempted to make entry into a residence located in the area of Russell Avenue and Gushee Street in Felton.

The suspect was described as a white male, approximately 35 to 40 years of age, between 5’8’’ and 5’10’’ in height, wearing blue jeans and white t-shirt with shoulder length blonde hair.

Approximately 20 minutes later, at 9:15 p.m., deputies received another report of a residential burglary on the 100 block of Redwood Drive.

According to reports, a man entered the residence. Once inside, the man removed a two-year-old female from her crib. The child alerted her mother of the intruder, at which time the suspect fled the residence. The child was unharmed.

According to Deputy Ryan Kennedy, due to the timing, location, and nature of the two incidents, deputies are considering the man described in the first incident as a suspect in both cases.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office dispatch at 471-1121.

I understand from the Bring Back Felton Facebook site that one of the forum members has an idea who might be the culprit in the break ins.

Has the sheriff talked with the homeless at the park about who this person might be? From the sounds of this person's post, he knows who it is.

The increasing crime in this town has got to come to a stop.
