Jeanette Ellis, a 45-year-old Redwood City resident, was arrested on Oct. 27 and booked into the San Mateo County jail, police said.
Officers had been called to a Jennings Lane home at about 7:14 p.m. that Sunday on a report that a resident saw a suspicious person inside the resident's home. They arrested Ms. Ellis near the Middlefield Road and Jennings Lane intersection.
Police were called out to Isabella Avenue early Tuesday morning, Oct. 29, after a resident reported seeing a suspicious person outside the house. Responding officers apprehended Andrea Chestnut, 29, of Redding, who was booked into the county jail on suspicion of attempted residential burglary and probation violation, police said.
Lt. Joe Wade said recent incidents have prompted the police department to issue alerts to residents "to lock their doors and set their alarms for both homes and vehicles."
The two areas where the burglary suspects were arrested last week weren't being hit hard with recent thefts, Lt. Wade said, adding that "most of our recent theft-related crimes have occurred west of El Camino Real in the Selby/Stockbridge neighborhoods."
