Three arrested in connection with burglaries

 

Menlo Park police arrested three male juveniles Thursday, July 7, in connection with several residential burglaries on Gilbert Avenue, Laurel Avenue and Pope Street in Menlo Park.

The arrests were triggered by a report from a resident in the 700 block of Gilbert Avenue who said that on returning home at about 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, it was discovered that the home was broken into and property was stolen.

The next day Menlo Park police detectives learned that the property reported missing was similar to items confiscated by officers from three male juveniles.

The juveniles -- a 14-year-old from Coalinga and a 13- and 14-year-old from East Palo Alto -- were booked into Juvenile Hall on suspicion of burglary.

The suspects admitted to other burglaries in the 700 block of Gilbert Avenue, the 100 and 800 blocks of Laurel Avenue, and the 500 block of Pope Street, said Nicole Acker, a spokesperson for the Menlo Park Police Department.

Anyone with information about these burglaries is asked to call the police department at 330-6300.
