Teens foil burglary attempt in their Pleasanton home on city's west side

 

A burglary plan was foiled Monday morning when a man entering a home in a Pleasanton neighborhood on the city's west side was confronted by one of two teenagers who were home at the time, police said.

The man allegedly knocked on the front door and when no one answered, entered the backyard and came into the house through an open window. The two teens were home and called 911. The man fled when he was confronted by one of the teens, who was also able to identify another man sitting in a car parked outside of the home.

When police arrived, they detained the man in the car and two K-9 units, one from the Pleasanton Police Department and the other from Dublin, searched in nearby backyards for the other suspect, who was found in a neighbor's storage shed.

The suspects, ages 18 and 19 from San Jose, were arrested for burglary and booked at Santa Rita Jail.
