CrimeBurglar & Package Thief Arrested in Milpitas

Burglar & Package Thief Arrested in Milpitas

At around 7 in the morning on August 27, Milpitas Police got a call about a burglary on Currant Drive’s 1400 block. At the time of the burglary, the garage door had been left open. The suspect walked in, then walked out with the homeowner’s bicycle (value: $1,700). 

As it happened, the very same day, a resident on Garden Street’s 200 block filed a report online regarding a stolen package.

After the police dug for surveillance footage, they were able to tie both thefts to one single individual, a middle-aged woman.

Assisting officers with the Santa Clara Police Department and Alameda Police Department wasted no time in identifying that suspect: Her name is Patricia Vasconcelos De Abreu (age 48), from San Jose.

With recordings of De Abreu carrying out burglary and petty theft, Milpitas Police Detectives got a $50,000 Ramey warrant for her arrest. It was on September 4 when they headed over to North King Road in San Jose and took the suspect into custody. 

In a press release, Milpitas Police issued a reminder to residents to “lock their doors, windows, and if you have an alarm, to activate it when leaving your home or going to bed for the evening. Taking these steps could prevent you from becoming a victim of a burglary or theft.” 

Anyone with more info about these incidents or De Abreu herself can call the MPD openly (408-586-2400) or anonymously (408-586-2500), or write in through their website: http://www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov/crimetip
