Backpack leads police to alleged burglar

 

A teenage boy dropped a backpack, lost a shoe, and left behind the laptop he was allegedly trying to steal while fleeing from a Menlo Park home Monday morning (April 4).

The home's resident surprised the boy by returning home to the 1100 block of Berkeley Avenue around 10 a.m. According to the police report, officers tracked the teen down with identification found in the backpack and arrested him.
