Authorities ID Alamo burglary suspect

Tips from public help investigators put name to face, sheriff's office says

Authorities announced Monday they have identified the suspect in a recent Alamo home invasion thanks to tips received after officials released surveillance video and photographs from the burglary incident.

The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office identified the suspect as Kyle Facchin, 29, of Walnut Creek. Investigators are reportedly searching for Facchin and seek information about his whereabouts.

Authorities said several people contacted the sheriff's office with information leading to the identification of Facchin as the primary suspect in the July 5 burglary on the 500 block of Neely Court in Alamo. The tips came after investigators distributed photos and video of the incident last week.

Sheriff's officials allege Facchin, who may be driving a black Honda CR-V, may also be tied to other residential burglaries in Alamo and southern Contra Costa County.

Anyone with information about Facchin's whereabouts can call investigators at (925) 313-2647. People with tips can also email or call (866) 846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message.

1. When the public works with the police, as they often do in our community, crimes can be solved and perps off the streets

2. This says a lot about the usefulness of security cameras

Kudos to the police and the community

The use of video surveillance cameras is going to make the crime not worth the risk. You can now buy a very good quality system for very little money. Sound investment in my opinion.
