Three East Palo Alto teenagers were arrested Wednesday after a resident spotted them allegedly breaking into a home in unincorporated Redwood City, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.
The sheriff's office responded to a call from a resident of the North Fair Oaks neighborhood who reported that a residential burglary was in progress at a home in the 800 block of 15th Avenue at about 9 a.m. Wednesday.
The witness said he saw two males enter a side entrance to the backyard while another stayed in front as a lookout, according to the sheriff's office.
Eventually all three suspects went inside and allegedly stole jewelry and other small items, sheriff's officials said.
A resident of the home discovered the burglars, and they fled the area in a vehicle that was quickly pulled over by responding deputies, according to the sheriff's office.
Items taken from the home were found in the vehicle, officials said.
Daniel Ibarra, 19, Bryan Palacios, 18, and a 17-year-old juvenile
were arrested on suspicion of residential burglary and taken into custody.
