Homes in Sabre Springs and Carmel Mountain Ranch were broken into early Thursday and investigators were working to determine if the same three suspects carried out those and similar recent break-ins in Rancho Bernardo and Sorrento Valley.
The latest home-invasion robbery occurred in the 14000 block of Breezeway Place near Cedarhurst Lane around 5:20 a.m. Three suspects, one of whom was armed with a gun, somehow gained entry to the home, tied up the residents and escaped with some of their property, San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali said.
The break-in was about five miles from the Sabre Springs neighborhood, where a trio of thieves entered a home in the 11300 block of Spring Meadow Lane through a side door around 2:45 a.m. Police said one suspect was armed during that robbery as well.
The suspects in the first robbery this morning were only said to have been wearing dark clothing and hooded sweatshirts, according to the officer.
Cali said it was not immediately clear whether the suspects were the same men wanted in connection with a home invasion robbery in the 11400 block of Aliento Court in Rancho Bernardo Friday and the weekend before in the 10700 block of Passerine Way in Sorrento Valley.
In both earlier cases, the thieves got into the home through a side door with no signs of forced entry, threatened residents with a gun and bound them, authorities said.
