Atherton: Police arrest two in separate burglary incidents

Atherton police have arrested two women over the last two days on suspicion of burglary and other crimes, the town reports.

Jeanette Ellis, a 45-year-old Redwood City resident, was arrested on Sunday night (Oct. 27) and booked into the San Mateo County jail, police said.

Police had been called to a Jennings Lane home at about 7:14 p.m. Sunday on a report that a resident saw a suspicious person inside the home.

Officers arrested Ms. Ellis near the Middlefield Road and Jennings Lane intersection.

Officers responded early Tuesday morning, Oct. 29, to Isabella Avenue after a resident reported seeing a suspicious person outside the house, and apprehended Andrea Chestnut, 29, of Redding.

Ms. Chestnut was booked into the county jail on suspicion of attempted residential burglary and probation violation
