3 Arrested After Deputies Allegedly Find Stolen Laptops in Their Car

Three men were arrested in Cupertino Wednesday night after Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputies allegedly found stolen iPads and laptops worth more than $3,200 in their car. Oakland residents Paul Edwards, 26, and Andre Dupree La Fleur, 24 and Paris Shular, 29 of Stockton, were booked into the county jail on suspicion of evading an officer, conspiracy, resisting arrest and possession of stolen property, narcotics and burglary tools, sheriff’s officials said.

A sheriff’s sergeant patrolling Bandley Drive just before 9 p.m. saw a man looking into parked cars with a flashlight, sheriff’s officials said. When the sergeant approached, the man got into a car and started to drive away, evading attempts to pull him over. The man’s car eventually crashed into the center median on Miller Avenue at Stevens Creek Boulevard, sheriff’s officials said. When the car stopped, the front-seat passenger got out and ran, but responding deputies arrested the driver and back seat passenger.

Other deputies and a K-9 unit responded to search for the front-seat passenger, eventually finding him in some bushes next to a business on Stevens Creek Boulevard and arresting him. Edwards was found to be on parole and Shular on county probation, sheriff’s officials said. Edwards and Shular are being held without bail and will be arraigned on Friday afternoon.
