The burglaries — involving at least six residences — occurred Wednesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 7, according to a Thursday night press release from Sgt. David Sasser of the Tracy Police Department.
Officers responded to calls at homes on the 2900 block of Reyes Lane, the 800 block of Windsong Drive, the 400 block of Arezzo Way, the 1300 block of Merced Way and the 1900 block of Pheasant Run Court, the release states.
Witnesses told police that two to four men were seen knocking on the front doors of burglarized homes.
Police believe the men are knocking to determine if anyone is home, and then forcing open the front door if the residence is vacant.
They are described as black men who are 20 to 30 years old wearing blue beanie-style hats, the release states. The men were seen driving a blue- or teal-colored four-door sedan that could be an early 2000s model Honda or Saturn.
Anyone with information about these burglaries should contact Sasser at 831-4550.
