Police arrested a man on Tuesday who is suspected in a home burglary last month in Palo Alto, police said.Tony Lopez, 27, of East Palo Alto was arrested at around 10:30 a.m. at a construction site in Portola Valley where he was working. Lopez is suspected of robbing a house in the 3000 block of Louis Road at 9:40 a.m. on March 22. A neighbor saw a man running out of her neighbor’s yard and getting into a vehicle with a second person.
The neighbor called police and reported the pair, and police confirmed that the neighbor’s house had been burglarized. A locked window had been pried open in the back yard, and among other property a big screen television had been stolen. Later that morning a Mountain View police officer spotted a car that fit the description of the one that drove away from the Palo Alto burglary.
The car made an erratic U-turn and got away from the officer. About a minute later, another officer spotted the same car driving erratically through a Gold’s Gym parking lot. The driver sped away from police and got away again. About 10 minutes later, police found the vehicle abandoned in a Google parking lot.
The television stolen from the Palo Alto residence was found inside the car, police said. Police searched the area around the car but did not locate any suspects.After his arrest Tuesday, Lopez was booked into the Santa Clara Main Jail on a felony burglary warrant.
