Menlo Park police find stolen property, arrest man on bail

Menlo Park police officers making a traffic stop in the 200 block of O'Keefe Street in Menlo Park on the morning of Dec. 18 arrested an East Palo Alto man on charges that include possession of stolen property.

Antonio Gonzalez, 26, was booked into San Mateo County jail. Police said they also charged Mr. Gonzalez with suspicion of committing a felony while out on bail, driving with a suspended license, and possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

During the traffic stop, police said, they discovered property in the vehicle that was stolen in a commercial burglary and in a theft from a vehicle, both of which took place in Ladera.

Police also found stolen items belonging to two victims in a theft that happened in November at Stanford Shopping Center, Palo Alto police spokesman Lt. Zach Perron said.

On the evening of Nov. 21, a group of women were having dinner outside at the California Pizza Kitchen at the shopping center. Two of them left the table briefly, leaving their purses on the table. An unknown man grabbed the purses and fled, Perron said.

Items of value in the purses included cell phones, iPad, wallets and cash, Lt. Perron said.

The man was described as Latino, in his 20s, wearing a red sports cap and with a medium build. He fled in a black, four-door car.
