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.
