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.
