Juveniles apprehended in residential burglary thanks to sharp-eyed neighbor

by Contributed Content on May 3, 2017

On Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at approximately 10:21 a., a resident observed two juveniles wearing backpacks enter through a gate of a neighboring residence on the 1000 block of Ringwood Avenue.

Menlo Park Police officers arrived on the scene and observed an open gate leading to the home. Once through the gate, they saw the two juveniles inside the house through a window. Officers were able to enter the residence through an open backdoor and confronted the suspects.

Both suspects were detained without incident and found to have stolen property in their possession from the residence. No one was home during the time of the incident, and all of the stolen property was recovered.

Both suspects, juveniles from East Palo Alto, were booked at Hillcrest Juvenile Hall for burglary.

I don’t really care where they are from but this sounds similar to another couple boys caught a month or two ago. Without naming names I would be very interested to know if these two have been arrested in the past for the same thing and if so what will be done about locking them up for a while so they don’t get a slap on the wrist and are back at in in a week or two.

Where they are from is important! If you look at the police logs/reports since the 50’s, 60’s, 70′, and up to present time, some things never change.
I personally know that crime in EPA has always been an accepted practice with that community, even when they started their own police dept. Somethings just never change!
Many in the community, despise police presence even being there. The attacks on police all over this country have been well documented on the news daily…blk lives matter is a prime example of that groups opinion of authority. I can recall many such behavioral attitudes, back in the day!
