Menlo Park man pleads no contest to house burglaries

 

A 19-year-old Menlo Park man pleaded no contest on Thursday, Jan. 22, to two counts of felony house burglary.

Manuel Alejandro Hernandez was arrested on Oct. 24, 2014, when police found him hiding in a nearby shed after the homeowner interrupted the burglary of a house on Hollyburne Avenue, according to police.

Officers retrieved identification documents that traced back to a home burglarized on Oct. 23, where a neighbor reportedly saw Mr. Hernandez stacking stolen televisions in the driveway of a home on Chilco Street.

According to the police report, a search of the suspect's home turned up items of stolen property, drugs that included codeine and hydrocodone, and a .45-caliber gun.

In exchange for pleading no contest, the San Mateo County Superior Court judge may impose a maximum sentence of three years and four months.

Represented by attorney Ross Green through the public defenders program, Mr. Hernandez is scheduled to be sentenced on March 3. He remains in custody on $100,000 bail.
