Officers arrested five males suspected of attempted robbery in Hillsborough on Thursday, police said. Police received reports of an attempted break in at an occupied home at around 6:30 p.m.
The suspects drove away and the resident reported the incident to officers who stopped a car and contacted its five occupants, San Mateo County officials said. Police said the suspects were in possession of burglary tools.
The car was impounded and all five suspects were arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary, and possession of burglary tools. The suspects were booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City.
Hillsborough homes have been targeted in a string of burglaries since April, police said.
