Two men arrested after Palo Alto burglary

Two men were arrested early Thursday morning after a neighbor spotted them stealing tools and construction supplies from a home under construction at 3600 Evergreen Drive in Palo Alto.

The men drove off with about $10,000 worth of construction tools and building materials, such as sinks, faucets, door knobs and floor and wall tiles, Sgt. Sandra Brown said.

But the neighbor gave a description of the car, which was stopped shortly afterward by a patrol officer. All the tools were recovered.

The burglary call came in at 5:47 a.m.

Enrique Alonzo, 25, of Campbell and Octavio Limon, 29, of San Jose were arrested and charged with burglary. They were booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail in San Jose.

Just pointing out, these two were from Campbell and San Jose, just in case we expected them to be from somewhere else.

The bad guys are moving further afield.

Vigilant neighbors are local heroes too. More vigilance and knowing who your neighbors are and what they are doing will stop/prevent crimes. I like this kind of story and hope to see more.
