The car was parked in the 1200 block of Carlton Avenue in Menlo Park. While investigating, officers received a call about a trespasser at an apartment on Willow Road. Those present in the apartment were either unsure as to whether they lived there, or were unwilling to be truthful about who did. Finally verifying that one person did, indeed, live there, police got permission to look around and came across the car stereo, identified by serial number.
Police escorted both the stereo and Daniela Ortega, 18, of Menlo Park, from the apartment. She went to jail for allegedly receiving stolen property, while the stereo went home to its owner.
