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.
