Police Arrest Belmont Burglary Suspects

The three men are tied to burglaries in Belmont and Redwood City.

A call by an alert neighbor in Redwood City led to the arrest of three suspects for residential burglaries in Belmont and Redwood City Friday afternoon.

According to Lt. Pat Halleran of the Belmont Police Department, on Fri., Oct, 12, at approximately 2:00 p.m., residents in the 1300 block of Sunnyslope Ave. called police to report a residential burglary.

The burglary had apparently occurred sometime after 9:00 a.m., when the residents left home, police said.  While officers were at the home, Redwood City police contacted Belmont police to report that they had three suspects in custody for another residential burglary.

The Redwood City case began at approximately 10:50 a.m., when a resident in the 400 block of Pine Street, called 9-1-1, reporting a burglary in progress.  Redwood City police responded and took three suspects into custody without incident. During the investigation of that burglary, Redwood City police found property from the earlier burglary in Belmont.

The three suspects, Raphaelle Jones, age 23 of Citrus Heights and Wyatt King, age 34 and Gabriel Carter, age 35, both of Oakland, were booked into the San Mateo County Jail, in Redwood City, on charges relating to both the Redwood City and Belmont burglaries.

Additional follow up by detectives lead to the discovery that the suspects were also responsible for a residential burglary in Palo Alto on Oct. 9, 2012.  Charges in that case are pending.

Booking photos for the suspects were available at the time of this posting.

Good job Belmont PD, now if only you could deal with the burglaries happening seconds from your station!

It's not the police's fault. It's the property owners... they dont lock the door and close the back window or locate where there are no eyes from the street. The police can't be every where at every second. Its an algebra problem- the urban scale needs to be propotional to the security tools available.
