Over the past several months, there have been numerous vehicle burglaries and auto thefts from the coastal communities in San Mateo County. Some of these thefts have resulted in the victims’ residences being burglarized shortly after their vehicles were either stolen or broken into. Through evidence and ongoing investigations, Jennifer Leigh Prince has been identified as a suspect in several of these cases.
Prince is usually in the company of either an unknown White or Hispanic male while committing her crimes and has been seen driving several different vehicle makes and models. Prince is wanted for questioning by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. If you see Prince, do not approach or confront her. We ask that you call 911 immediately. Please try to get any description of clothing, associates, vehicle/license plate, direction of travel, etc., without putting yourself in harms way.
Citizens and visitors to our beautiful coast side areas are reminded to follow these security tips:
• Immediately call in any suspicious activity to 9-1-1
• Please keep your vehicles and residences locked
• Never leave valuables inside your car so a thief can easily choose what to steal
