Stanford police arrest suspected burglars

Stanford police arrested two men and a woman late last Thursday afternoon while they were investigating a dormitory break-in.

A student told them that "suspicious people" were in the area and the three people were arrested in connection with several Jan. 31 dorm burglaries, according to Detective Chris Cohendet.

The three people arrested are believed to have pried open doors in dorm rooms at Governor's Corner and Lagunita Court residences, stealing laptops, iPods and cell phones.

Police did not release their identities. But Cohendet said the three were identified by students who had been burglarized.

About 20 students lost items in the burglaries and police are processing recovered property, Cohendet said.

Why weren't their names released?
