Police dispatch airplane and dogs after alleged burglary

Posted on in

Law enforcement says the three men fled from the scene and disappeared into a nearby canyon. Police brought in dogs to search for the three men. The California Highway Patrol dispatched an airplane to provide air surveillance of the area. The massive manhunt apparently proved unsuccessful, and the search was called off by around 12:30 p.m.

Despite not being able to locate any of the alleged burglars, police claim they have suspects in mind. Law enforcement believes one of the men allegedly involved in the purported burglary is an East Palo Alto man. A second person that police think was involved is a San Carlos man who is on parole.

Authorities apparently found a car at, or near, the residence that they believe is linked to the alleged burglary. Law enforcement is relying on the presence of the car to support their suspicions on who may have been involved in the alleged incident.

Inside the residence, police claim they found a pile of guns and other items. Law enforcement believes the three men piled the items in the home, intending to steal the belongings. Because the residents were apparently on vacation, law enforcement does not know if any items were taken in the alleged home invasion.
