"The defendants had flown to (the) Bay Area from Arizona to burglarize residences and somehow found the victims' home," District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said in a report.
A video recording from a neighbor's surveillance camera allegedly shows the two men pulling up in front of the victims' home in a rental car and emerging from the car, prosecutors said. One man allegedly walked up to the home while the other stayed behind to hide the car's license plate number, but not before the surveillance camera sees it, prosecutors said.
The investigation led detectives to the defendants' home in Glendale, Arizona, where they acquired a search warrant and allegedly found jewelry matching descriptions of the jewelry stolen from the Woodside home, prosecutors said.
The men were arraigned in March 2014 and the case is set to go to a jury trial at 8:45 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 18.
