Newport police search for burglary suspect

Newport Beach police are looking for a man they believe is responsible for attempting to burglarize a home in the 700 block of Malabar Drive, authorities said.

The suspect is Caucasian or Latino, about 5 feet, 10 inches and 200 pounds with a shaved head and dark mustache.

On the morning of Oct. 10, police believe the man removed a screen door from the rear of a Newport Beach home and used an unknown tool to pry open the sliding door, according to a news release.

The suspect did not take any property and was likely interrupted by the resident returning home, the release stated.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact Det. Chris Kimble at 949) 644-3767. Messages can be left anonymously.
