SMC Sheriff’s Office announce arrests in Millbrae residential burglary

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two of three suspects in connection with a residential burglary in Millbrae last month, said spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt.

On Oct. 13 about 9:52 a.m., residents of a house in the 200 block of Loyola Drive came home to find three men ransacking their bedroom, Rosenblatt said. When confronted, the suspects fled, knocking the 68-year-old female resident down to the ground. She was not seriously injured.

The suspects took a small amount of jewelry, Rosenblatt said. They reportedly fled in a gray Infinity FX35 northbound on Loyola Drive and then east on Murchison Drive. Two days later, Sheriff’s Office investigators arrested Oakland resident Vidal Torres, 24, at a work site in the 500 block of Quarry Road in San Carlos, Rosenblatt said. Two weeks later, deputies arrested 20-year-old Redwood City resident Jose Vargas at a home in the 3500 block of Farm Hill Boulevard in Redwood City.

Both men are considered suspects in the Oct. 13 burglary. One suspect remains at large.

Torres was booked into County Jail on charges of burglary, elder abuse, stealing from the elderly, criminal conspiracy, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and a gang enhancement, Rosenblatt said. Vargas was booked on charges of burglary, elder abuse and a gang enhancement.

Investigators are seeking the public’s help in finding the third suspect, Rosenblatt said. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Detective Joe Cang at (650) 259-2417 or email him at jcang@smcgov.org.
