WALNUT CREEK (CBS SF) — Walnut Creek police arrested an Alameda man and San Leandro woman on Sunday morning after they were found with stolen items including mail taken from homes, police said.
Officers responded to a report of a car alarm sounding and a suspicious vehicle spotted in the area of Camino Verde and Quail View Circle at about 7:35 a.m., police said.
When officers arrived, they found that a car had been burglarized, according to police.
During the investigation, the reporting party, who was still at the scene, pointed out another suspicious car that appeared to be circling the area, police said.
