Deputies look for man after suspicious Woodside incident

by Dave Boyce

Authorities are still looking for a man a San Mateo County Sheriff's Office deputy discovered pushing buttons on a call box at the gate of a residence on Mountain Home Road then escaping on foot on Friday, Aug. 12, a Sheriff's Office spokesman told the Almanac.

A warrant has been sworn out for suspect Scott Louis Hendrickson, 40, of Rodeo, on charges of possession of stolen property and burglary tools. Mr. Hendrickson is also on parole, Lt. Ray Lunny said in a phone interview.

With Mr. Hendrickson at the time was Scott Arlin Evers, 38, of San Mateo, also a parolee and now in county jail on the same charges, deputies said.

A deputy on a motorcycle discovered Mr. Hendrickson at the gate of the Mountain Home residence. Mr. Hendrickson walked across the street to his vehicle and got in and drove off, deputies said.

Records showed the vehicle's registration as expired, so the deputy went after it, made a traffic stop and discovered that both men were parolees and thus eligible for random search and seizure, deputies said.

While Mr. Evers was out of the car being searched, Mr. Hendrickson drove off on to Mountain Home Road, turned left on to Vintage Court — a dead end — and crashed through several fences before stopping his disabled vehicle and running away, deputies said.

Deputies said Mr. Hendrickson is white, 5 feet 8 inches tall, and has a shaved head. He was wearing a blue shirt, blue pants and white shoes at the time.

They are advising an immediate call to 911 in encountering someone matching this description. "Do not approach or try to apprehend subject," the deputies said.
