REDWOOD CITY (CBS SF) – A man was arrested early Thursday after hiding in an attic from police after they arrived to investigate a silent burglary alarm at a Little Caesars Pizza restaurant in Redwood City, police said.

Police arrived at the restaurant at around 3 a.m. and saw the suspect climb into the attic of the restaurant, located at 2193 Roosevelt Ave., according to police.

Officers established a perimeter around the commercial complex where the restaurant is located, and began searching the restaurant and the adjoining business for the suspect.

Redwood City police received assistance from the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and its police dog.

The police dog located the suspect hiding in a dental office at 2183 Roosevelt Ave., and when he refused to come out, the dog bit him.

The suspect, Joseph Albert Sciarra Jr., 44, was treated for his dog bite, arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of commercial burglary.

Sciarra, a Redwood City resident, is also suspected of committing several recent burglaries in the complex, police said.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.
    This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.

      No doubt 9-11 is a big Amerikan Reichstag but why are you commenting here?

    9-11 is a giant insurance scam to get more money! If they caused a fire it would look too suspicous when questions would be asked and the building looking like an ugly gutted shell.

    Two people were given a 99 year lease the summer before and the firefighters and basement workers all confirm secondary explosions coming FROM the basement.

    Plus the lobby was already destroyed well below impact point when the rescue workers rushed in.
