For the second time in two weeks, a suspect wanted for homicide in Merced County has been arrested in Menlo Park, according to a Menlo Park Police Department report.
Around 2 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 15, detectives from the Narcotic Enforcement Team spotted a silver BMW linked to the Merced case parked in the driveway of a home in the 100 block of Newbridge Street in Menlo Park, according to the report. They set up surveillance around the residence, which paid off when a man matching the description of one suspect left in a dark-colored Honda approximately two and a half hours later.
