Atherton man, Menlo Park woman arrested in connection with burglary investigations

An Atherton man and a Menlo Park woman, both age 22, were arrested Saturday in connection with an investigation into recent home and vehicle burglaries in Menlo Park.

William Lee Patton of Atherton and Gabriella Bird Flower of Menlo Park, were arrested without incident, police said.

On Saturday afternoon, police investigating burglaries were led to the area of Avy and Lucky avenues, where a stolen iPad gave off a signal. Officers said they saw Mr. Patton leave a vehicle that had been reported stolen on July 23.

Police said they found several items in the vehicle that were reported stolen during a residential burglary on July 27.

Further investigation led officers to a home in the 1000 block of Lucky Avenue, where they found several more items that were reported stolen during other residential and vehicle burglaries.

Ms. Flower, a known associate of Mr. Patton, was found to be in possession of narcotics and narcotic paraphernalia, police said.

Menlo Park police ask anyone with information about this matter to call the police department at (650) 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at (650) 330-6395.
