Burglary interrupted, man arrested


Redwood City police on Thursday announced the arrest of a man they believe ran away from a Redwood City home in the course of committing a burglary on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers went to a house in the 1100 block of Marsh Road at around 2:45 p.m. after a woman called to report she had interrupted a burglary in progress, according to Redwood City police.

The suspect, later identified as 18-year-old Christopher Vea, apparently fled with some of the victim's property, police said.

Based on witness statements and evidence recovered at the scene of the burglary, detectives obtained a warrant to search Mr. Vea's home in East Palo Alto.

Property taken from the victim's residence was allegedly found in Mr. Vea's possession when investigators searched the home Wednesday evening.

Mr. Vea was arrested for residential burglary and booked into San Mateo County Jail
