Pleasanton police seize 4 San Jose males after chase for auto burglaries

First spotted during truck burglary on Junipero Street

Pleasanton police arrested four males from San Jose early Monday after they were spotted burglarizing a truck parked in the 200 block of Junipero Street.

Police were alerted to the burglary at 2:15 a.m. by a resident and found that at least two vehicles had been burglarized.

Then a resident on Medallion Court reported a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood that matched the description of the vehicle involved in previous burglaries.

As police arrived, the suspects fled in a silver sedan, with police giving chase, pursuing the suspects as they fled south on Regency Drive and then northbound on Lylewood Drive where their vehicle struck a curb.

The driver and two passengers were taken into custody at that location but the fourth suspect fled on foot through a nearby park and remained at large despite an extensive search of the area, police said.

However, at 6:55 a.m. another resident called police to report a suspicious person walking in the neighborhood. Officers again responded, spotted the suspect and eventually took him into custody after a foot chase.

The property stolen from the earlier burglaries was located in the suspects' vehicle, where police also found property believed to have been stolen from other burglaries that haden't yet been reported.

Arrested were Carlos Marcelo, 23, Freddy Reyes, 20, and two juveniles, all charged with suspicion of burglary, evading a police officer, conspiracy and possession of burglary tools. All four are from San Jose.

Pleasanton police said anyone who may have witnessed the auto burglaries or who may have information about possible associated burglaries should call them at (925) 931-5100.
