Officials within the Burlingame Police Department have confirmed that two men who are believed to be tied to a recent auto burglary were captured earlier this week during a routine traffic stop.
Burlingame PD dispatch officers said they were initially tipped of to the pair’s unlawful activity when they received reports that a vehicle had been broken into; two suspicious males were also seen walking throughout the area.
The men were gone by the time police arrived at the scene of the crime but the caller was able to provide them with the suspects’ license plate number along with a full description of their car.
During the course of the investigation, police officials were tipped off that a car with the very same license plate had been pulled over for a routine traffic stop in Daly City.
Officers within that department detained the suspects until the BPD was able to arrive and pick them up.
The 53 year-old and his 24 year-old accomplice have since been booked at the Maguire Jail.
