Following an investigation by detectives with the Redwood City Street Crimes Suppression Team on December 3, officers with the Redwood City Sheriff's Office arrested an alleged offender who was robbing retail stores in the area.

According to a release, detectives began an investigation into a possible organized robbery after receiving information of suspicious activity involving a subject, later identified as Eric Crossman, in the 200 block of Grand Street. 

Following the information, detectives conducted a parole search of the suspect's residence and located more than 80 items stolen from various Home Depot stores in the Bay Area. 

Most of the items recovered were high-end power tools and electronics, with a total value of $14,000. 

The items were taken from Home Depot outlets in San Carlos, San Mateo, Colma, Pittsburg, Brentwood and San Jose. 

Thus, 24-year-old Eric Crossman was booked into the San Mateo County Jail for commercial burglary, possession of stolen property, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance.   

In response, authorities asked anyone who may have additional information about this incident to contact Detective Sergeant Nick Perna at 650-780-7672, or the Redwood City Police Department's tip line at 650-780-7110.
