Redwood City police arrested a suspect in a home burglary on Friday after finding him hiding in a nearby Chinese restaurant. Officers responded to a report of a burglary in progress after a resident of the 300 block of Madrone Street returned home around 11:20 a.m. and saw a man walking around inside his house, according to Redwood City police. The man confronted the intruder, who ran out of the home through a smashed sliding glass door and fled on foot, police said.
The victim got into his car and followed the burglar for a short distance, police said. He was able to provide a description of the man and a general idea of his whereabouts. Responding officers searched the neighborhood and quickly tracked down the suspect, who was hiding in the US Chinese Food restaurant at 2490 El Camino Real. Police identified him as Miguel Zamora, a 29-year-old homeless man from the Redwood City area. Zamora was arrested on suspicion of residential burglary and booked into San Mateo County Jail. The property that had been taken from the victim’s home was returned, police said.
