Arrest Made In Copper Theft At Apple’s ‘Spaceship’ Campus

CUPERTINO (CBS SF) — A Belmont man was arrested Saturday in the theft of copper pipes and wiring from a former Hewlett-Packard Corp. property in Cupertino where Apple Corp. is planning its Apple 2 campus, a sheriff’s sergeant said.

Glenn Cartwright, 56, was booked on Saturday into the Santa Clara County Main Jail following his arrest on suspicion of burglary and possession of burglary tools, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup said.

Cartwright was later released on $11,000 bail, Stenderup said.

Around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Apple’s property in the 19000 block of Pruneridge Avenue in Cupertino based on a report by security guards about a burglary in progress, Stenderup said.

Apple security had noticed that a gate to the fenced-off former Hewlett-Packard office site was opened about two hours after they had last checked to make sure it was closed, Stenderup said.

The security guards believed that someone was still on the property, Stenderup said.

Deputies called a sheriff’s department helicopter to fly overhead and enlisted help from the city of Santa Clara’s K-9 unit to assist in the searching the property, Stenderup said.

A police dog later located Cartwright hiding in the bushes and after he refused to comply with orders from authorities to come out, the dog was released and bit him before his arrest, Stenderup said.

Deputies nearby found some copper tubing and wiring that had been yanked out of the walls from old buildings formerly owned by Hewlett-Packard, Stenderup said.

“It was piled up in a way that he was going to move it to a car or something,” Stenderup said.

Cartwright was treated for the dog bite at a local hospital before deputies brought him to the jail for booking, according to Stenderup.

Apple has slated the former Hewlett-Packard buildings for demolition to make way for its planned new campus, he said.

On Oct. 15, the Cupertino City Council voted to approve Cupertino-based Apple’s plan to build its 3.7 million-square-foot Apple 2 campus for about 12,000 employees, including a massive 60-foot-high circular building nicknamed the “spaceship.”

The project, to be built on the 176-acre former Hewlett-Packard campus, is set to be completed by around mid-2016.
