Silent alarm trips up alleged burglars
Deputies arrested four people Saturday morning after deputies saw them running from the scene of a burglary at a San Carlos camera rental store.
At 5:47 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a silent burglary alarm at BorrowLenses.com, located at 1664 Industrial Road, according to sheriff’s officials.
As deputies arrived on scene, deputies witnessed four people running away from the back of the closed business, sheriff’s officials said.
Deputies were able to quickly detain three of the suspects.
Deputies found the fourth suspect hiding underneath a nearby parked van, sheriff’s officials said.
Deputies determined the suspects had been driving the van, which was reported stolen out of Sunnyvale. Inside the van deputies found burglary tools and laptops that had been taken from a Fremont business during a burglary that went unreported, according to sheriff’s officials.
Deputies arrested all four on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property, possession of a stolen vehicle, conspiracy and gang enhancement.
Deputies identified the suspects as Los Angeles residents Ryan Macias, 23, Victor Parra, 31, Marco Beltran, 25, and Roberto Calderon, 33.
All four suspects were booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City, sheriff’s officials said.
