A 40-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of committing a hot prowl burglary in Redwood City on Wednesday, police said.
Vashon Conway was booked into San Mateo County Jail for residential burglary, being under the influence of a controlled substance and a probation violation in connection with the incident that occurred at 11:50 p.m. in an apartment complex in the 1100 block of Hilton Street, police said.
Redwood City police responded to the scene on a report of an in-progress residential burglary. Officers arrived to find Conway in front of the apartment complex. When they approached the victim’s apartment, they saw the front window screen had been removed and the front window open, police said.
