Menlo College students arrested

Two Menlo College students were arrested last week after a security guard said he saw them stealing backpacks at neighboring Menlo School in Atherton.

Raphael Daniel Bettan and Ryan Goodman, both 18, were arrested Nov. 1 on suspicion of grand theft after a security guard saw them take backpacks left unattended at Menlo School, Atherton police Sgt. Sherman Hall said.

The college students were seen picking up the unattended bags and taking them to a nearby grove of trees, Sgt. Hall said.

Security officers apprehended the suspects and called police.

Two iPads and other electronic items believed to have been stolen were later found in the college students' dormitory, Sgt. Hall said.

Police are investigating whether the suspects are responsible for other thefts recently reported on campus.
