Two were arrested on suspicion of a burglary at a San Leandro K-Mart on Christmas morning, according to police. An alarm company for the K-Mart at 250 Floresta Blvd. reported a possible break-in there at 4:57 a.m. this morning, police said. When officers arrived, they saw a car parked on the side of the K-Mart with its lights on. The driver drove away from the parking lot, and police followed believing it may be involved in a burglary. The driver turned onto a street with no outlet and when forced to stop, the front passenger ran from the car and was caught by a pursuing officer. The driver was detained inside the car.
Police searched the car and found thousands of dollars worth of jewelry. Officers checked the K-Mart and discovered signs of a break-in in the garden area on the southeast side of the building. Police also discovered that a jewelry case inside the store had been forced open. The two suspects, identified as Quan Tran, 36, of Alameda and Edward Tam, 40, of Oakland, were arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary.
