Hillsborough police seeking man donning Santa hat during alleged burglary

HILLSBOROUGH, Calif. -- Police in Hillsborough are asking for the public's help to identify a Santa Claus hat-wearing man suspected of burglarizing a home and business early Friday morning.

The suspect gained access to the home's garage by stealing the remote garage door opener from an unlocked vehicle in the driveway, according to police.

Once inside the garage, the suspect took various items, including keys to a family-owned business in San Francisco.

The suspect then left the home and went to San Francisco at around 3 a.m. to burglarize the business, police said.

Officers were able to obtain images of the suspect from security camera footage from the business.
