Local Residents Linked to School Computers Theft

Computers stolen in July from Deveneck Elementary have been recovered.


Seven people have been linked to a school burglary that occurred in Palo Alto over the summer, police said today.

Several computers stolen from Duveneck Elementary School at 705 Alester Ave. have been recovered, police said.

In the July 25 burglary, someone forcibly entered the school and stole Apple laptops and iPad tablets, police said.

The investigation led police to believe that 20-year-old Jaime Maldonaldo, of Menlo Park, was responsible for the burglary.

Maldonado has been arrested and charged with burglary and possession of stolen property, police said.

Police named six other suspects who they said purchased several of the stolen computers.

Gloria Cahuich, 37, of Menlo Park; Redwood City residents Yadira Cahuich, 33, and Antonio Garnica, 32; and Hayward residents Norma Palominos, 38, Giovanni Palominos, 20, and Stephaine Garcia, 20, have been charged with possession of stolen property, according to police.
