Officers responded at 1:12 p.m. that day, April 11, to the home in the 700 block of Nash Avenue, according to the police report. Two laptops, an iPad, a jewelry box containing necklaces, earrings and watches, a camera charger and a gym bag, with a total estimated value of $8,600, were gone.
With some help from tracking software on the victim's iPad, they determined that the missing items were now in Redwood City.
Upon arrival at the iPad's location, police found 32-year-old Guadalupe Gallegos and 33-year-old Javier Lopez-Wiltron, both of Redwood City. The pair allegedly had "a large amount of stolen property" from burglaries in Menlo Park, unincorporated Redwood City and Palo Alto.
The two suspects were arrested and booked into San Mateo County jail on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy, with the additional counts of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and associated paraphernalia (a pipe) for Mr. Lopez-Wiltron.
Menlo Park police ask anyone with information about this case to call 330-6300 or the anonymous tip hotline at 330-6395. Police are working with other jurisdictions to identify the owners of other items found during the arrests.
