Three boys were arrested in Palo Alto after they were seen stealing a package from a porch in the 800 block of University Avenue near Guinda Street Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 15.
The officer continued to follow the boys while other units were called. Officers arrested the youths a block away between Fulton Street and Middlefield Road, Lum said.
Lum said the contents of the parcel are unknown. She declined to give the boys' ages or their cities of residence, saying the nondisclosure is in keeping with policy regarding juvenile suspects.
The boys were arrested for conspiracy and theft, but additional charges could be pending, since the police report on the incident is preliminary, she said. Two of the boys were released to their parents and one boy was taken to juvenile hall, she said.
