Two Redwood City residents were arrested Tuesday in connection with a series of crimes in North Fair Oaks, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
Roberto Diaz, 31, and Margarita Barragan, 29, were arrested on suspicion of burglary, possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting arrest, possession of stolen property, vandalism and conspiracy, sheriff’s officials said.
Deputies responded at 8:06 a.m. Tuesday to the 600 block of 14th Avenue after receiving a call from a resident about a suspicious vehicle parked in his neighbor’s yard and people in the neighbor’s backyard.
They determined the vehicle was reported stolen out of San Mateo and located the suspects, later identified as Diaz and Barragan, in the backyard of the residence.
The suspects tried to flee on foot, but Barragan was apprehended after a short chase, according to the sheriff’s office.
Diaz was taken into custody after he was found hiding in a shed in a nearby backyard. Deputies said Diaz refused to exit the shed, so a Redwood City police K-9 was sent in after him.
He was taken into custody after a brief struggle, sheriff’s officials said.
