A 19-year-old Redwood City man was arrested last week following a vehicle burglary at Pescadero State Beach, according to the San Mateo County sheriff’s office.
Brayan Edguardo Menendeztobar was placed under arrest Thursday afternoon after San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies pulled over the stolen vehicle he was in, according to deputies.
Occupants of the stolen vehicle were reported to be involved in a burglary at Pescadero State Beach about 1:30 p.m. The burglary victim provided deputies with both the description of the suspect car and its license late number. Deputies learned the suspect vehicle had been stolen in Salinas.
While traveling northbound on Highway 1, a deputy spotted the stolen vehicle and pulled it over. While Menendeztobar was taken into custody, a second unidentified suspect fled into the woods and, despite a search, deputies were unable to locate him.
Menendeztobar was booked at the Maguire Correctional Facility for possession of a stolen vehicle and auto burglary, deputies said.
Anyone with information regarding this case are asked to call Detective Daniel Chiu at (650) 363-4057 or the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office Anonymous Witness Line at 1-800-547-2700.
