An Oakland man and woman were arrested Thursday by Hillsborough police, who identified the pair as suspects behind a string of residential burglaries, police said.Investigators obtained a search warrant for a house on the 900 block of MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland, where 42-year-old Beverly Wilkerson and 49-year-old Matthew Primrose were living.Police say that the suspects have criminal histories with charges ranging from assault with deadly weapons to drug offenses, and the department tasked a San Mateo County SWAT team with serving what they called a “high-risk warrant.”Another resident of the home who is currently in jail has three registered handguns that were believed to be inside the home, police said.Wilkerson and Primrose were taken into custody without incident at about 1 p.m. Thursday, police said. Once inside the home, officers recovered property they say was stolen from at least two Hillsborough homes and properties in several other cities.According to police, Wilkerson and Primrose were on either parole or probation.Police are working to identify and contact the victims of the burglary ring, and the investigation is ongoing.
