The Redwood City Police were able to locate and arrest four youths at their individual residences this afternoon who had robbed the Mentoring Institute on July 28.
The suspects opened a rear door and entered the building, where they then stole a computer and electronic equipment. The suspects were able to leave the building undetected.
But while the suspects were in the building, they had logged onto one of the computers, Sgt. Sean Hart said. Police were then able to trace this log-in back to the suspects. He added that they also left behind physical evidence, but could not say what.
Detectives searched the suspects’ residences and located most of the property stolen in the burglary.
The two older suspects were booked into juvenile hall while the other two were released to their parents. The District Attorney's office will decide what charges to bring against them.
Friends for Youth could not comment on the break-in because they had just been notified of the news today as well.
Anyone with information regarding this burglary is encouraged to contacted Detective Val Cook at 780-7697.
