Peninsula: Teens in custody following bowling-alley burglary

Two teenagers are in San Mateo County jail after burglarizing Bel Mateo Bowl on Olympic Boulevard on Thursday morning, police said.

An alarm at approximately 3:35 a.m. brought San Mateo police to the scene, where they surrounded the building and saw the two suspects exit. The pair attempted to flee the scene on foot, but officers — with help from Foster City, Belmont and San Bruno officers — found them and arrested them.

Both suspects, Marco Brekalo and Ernesto Lopez, are 18-year-old San Mateo residents. They were booked into jail on charges of burglary, conspiracy and resisting officers.

High school enrollment policy to remain as-is

The Sequoia High School District is opting to keep its open-enrollment plan in place — for now — despite signs that it’s leading to overcrowding at Carlmont High School.

Over the years, Carlmont’s enrollment has crept up to 2,161 students, higher than its capacity of 2,096; Sequoia’s has fallen to 1,571, less than its capacity of 2,306. However, board members conferred during a meeting Wednesday, and chose to continue approving students’ transfer requests to Carlmont. No formal vote was taken.
