A 56-year-old transient man was arrested last week after he allegedly burglarized a Cuesta Park home and took a backpack containing a laptop and clothes.
Police received reports that a resident on the 100 block of Cuesta Drive arrived home around 7 p.m. on Monday, April 22, to find the man inside the house. The homeowner reportedly confronted the suspect, who left the area on foot.
The man appears to have entered the property through the home's patio door, which was closed but did not appear to be locked at the time, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
Officers were given a description of the suspect and spotted him a short distance away, at the corner of Grant Road and Cuesta Drive, where he was identified by the resident, Nelson said. The suspect reportedly took a backpack from the home with a laptop and clothing inside.
The man was arrested on suspicion of felony burglary charges, and was booked into Santa Clara County jail, where he was being held without bail.
