Pacifica Police arrested a San Pedro man with a pair of burglaries that occurred in the city early Saturday morning.

The first report came from a cannabis business on the 2100 block of Palmetto Avenue. Security told police a man tried and failed to force his way through the front door. Police canvassed the area and found 32-year-old Curtis Lee Smith Jr. sitting in a car not far away. He matched the description from the store security personnel.

Later that morning, officers were dispatched to a convenience story on the 100 block of Manor Drive, which reported a burglary overnight. Surveillance camera footage showed Smith in the store during the burglary, according to Police.

Smith was booked into county jail on felony burglary and vandalism charges.
