Palo Alto police arrested two suspects Tuesday for allegedly possessing property stolen from parked cars. At 11:08 a.m., a patrol officer spotted a green 1999 Ford Explorer parked in the 600 block of Los Robles Avenue with a man in the driver’s seat, according to Palo Alto police.
When the officer approached the vehicle, he saw a 17-year-old woman asleep in the front passenger seat. When she awoke, she exhibited symptoms of being under the influence of narcotics, police said. Further investigation revealed that the two were in possession of property stolen from five parked cars, all taken overnight from Sunday to Monday. Four of the cars were unlocked and parked in the 500, 600, and 700 blocks of Kendall Avenue and the 700 block of Chimalus Drive, police said.
The recovered property included a laptop computer, gift cards, personal checks, and a wallet. Officers also found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and illegal prescription drugs in the possession of the juvenile.
Police booked Gregorio Martin Santa Gadea, 25, of Palo Alto, in the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of possession of stolen property.
The 17-year-old woman, also from Palo Alto, was taken to Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of possession of stolen property, possession of methamphetamine, possession of illegal narcotics, and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.
