A Mountain View man was arrested in the early hours of Jan. 24 after allegedly breaking into a garage for the second time seeking to "steal women's undergarments for sexual satisfaction," according to police.
One of the victims, a 39-year-old woman who lives in the home, called police when she saw a man force his way into the garage, Wylie said. When police arrived, they discovered Quintero, who held his hands in his pockets and refused to comply with officers' commands.
The police ultimately forced Quintero to the ground, discovered a screwdriver and a wrench in his pockets, which police believe he used to force his way into the garage, Wylie said.
Police believe Quintero is the same person who broke into the garage of a house on Jane Lane on Dec. 21, Wylie said. Both times, it is believed that he was in search of women's undergarments.
"This is very strange for us," Wylie said. "It's not common that we have this kind of thing happen." Police do not believe that any other homes have been burglarized by Quintero at this time.
