Woodside: Three youths arrested in residential burglary case

 

Three juvenile suspected of being involved in a residential burglary in Woodside, and possibly two others in the town, are being held in a youth detention facility in San Mateo on charges that include burglary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy.

The Sheriff's Office, which provides police service to Woodside, does not release the names of juvenile suspects.

The juveniles, all male, were arrested Dec. 6.

Deputies said that at about 10:40 a.m. on that date they received a call reporting a residential burglary in the 200 block of Woodside Drive in the Woodside Hills neighborhood -- to the north of Woodside Road and to the west of Alameda de las Pulgas.

While enroute, deputies learned that a witness reported seeing three Hispanic youths in red jackets running toward the Alameda. Deputies said they located three youths matching this description near the intersection of the Alameda and Maddux Drive in Redwood City.

During the on-scene investigation, deputies said they found property reported stolen from the burglary, which led to the youths' arrest. The arrests and transportation to the detention center took place without incident, deputies said.

Detectives said they are investigating the youths in connection with two other residential burglaries in Woodside.

The Sheriff's Office statement congratulates the witness who "saw something and said something."
