East Palo Alto man faces felony charges tied to burglaries at Menlo Park restaurants

Charge of receiving stolen property dismissed

A 61-year-old East Palo Alto man charged with burglarizing four Menlo Park restaurants has been held to answer after a preliminary hearing on Monday, April 20.

Prosecution of five felony burglary counts will proceed, but a charge of receiving stolen property was dismissed for insufficient evidence.

Defense attorney Richard Keyes's request that all counts be reduced to misdemeanors was denied, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.

Alfred Lee Banks was arrested Feb. 10 when a Menlo Park police officer noticed during a traffic stop that he allegedly matched the description of a suspect caught by surveillance cameras at the restaurants.
