FRESNO - On Friday a citizen observed suspicious activity at her neighbor's residence in the 2800 block of East Pico Avenue near Mariposa Avenue. The neighbor saw a rear bedroom window open with a large duffel bag full of property directly below the open window. The neighbor was aware the resident was away for the day so there should be no reason for the window to be wide open with a duffel bag below the window. The neighbor called the police.

As officers were converging on the area, another neighbor flagged down an officer and conveyed he saw a suspicious male walking away from the victim's residence. The neighbor did not recognize the male but thought it was odd and suspicious the male was carrying a large pickle jar full of coins. The neighbor told officers the suspect was walking through Cary Park.
