East Palo Alto man among those suspected of burglarizing home

Three suspects were arrested Tuesday in connection with a residential burglary in Redwood City that briefly prompted a shelter-in-place order for neighbors, police said.

Tyson Garcia, 18, of Mountain View, Keanu Tejada, 18, of East Palo Alto, and Gianni Monterrosa, 18, of Hayward, were arrested on suspicion of residential burglary and conspiracy, police said.

Tejada and Garcia were also arrested on outstanding probation violation warrants.

Officers responded at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday to the 1200 block of Foothill Street after an alert citizen saw a vehicle he did not recognize park across the street from his neighbor's residence.

Responding officers discovered one suspect in the vehicle and took him into custody.

Officers discovered a smashed window at the residence and saw the inside had been ransacked, police said.

Officers asked neighbors to stay indoors while they began a search of the area. Police eventually located two of the suspects hiding in the backyard of a residence in the 1200 block of Fernside Street and the search concluded around 4 p.m.

Police said a loaded handgun was also located near where the suspects were hiding.

Anyone with information about the suspects or the case is encouraged to call Detective Mark Alifano at 650-780-7673.
