Around 10:32 a.m. on March 26, a Menlo Park man saw two people he didn't recognize in the 300 block of Central Avenue, in the Willows neighborhood. After watching the pair travel up and down the driveway of the house next door, he decided to call the police.
After officers arrived, they found another resident who said someone had tried to force open the door to her home. An extensive search turned up two men who matched the descriptions of the suspects, and a bag tossed into some bushes containing jewelry and other small items allegedly stolen from yet another house, this one on Laurel Avenue, according to the police report.
Robert Clark, 22, and James McGee, 23, both of Redwood City, were arrested for burglary, attempted burglary and conspiracy. Police also said Mr. Clark was on parole for burglary and possession of stolen property at the time of the arrest.
Police ask anyone who might have information about this case to call 330-6300 or the anonymous tipline at 330-6395.
