Two Mountain View auto burglary suspects nabbed while making a getaway

Witnesses to three incidents led Mountain View police to make arrests

Two Mountain View residents were arrested Tuesday after they were allegedly seen burglarizing vehicles and stealing a package from a home before attempting to make a getaway on Highway 85.

The pair was first spotted on the 300 block of Gladys Avenue on Tuesday, Jan. 14, where witnesses say the pair burglarized a car and left in a white Nissan Rogue with Uber stickers on the windows, according to a statement by the Mountain View Police Department.

Officers received a call minutes after the first one saying that two people matching the description from the burglary incident were seen taking a package from a home on Savannah Loop, just a few blocks away.

A third call came from witnesses who say two people were seen burglarizing another vehicle on the 300 block of Ellis Street, again with a similar description of the alleged thieves.

Police tracked down the vehicle as it was getting onto southbound Highway 101 and stopped the vehicle on the freeway just before the Homestead exit.
