A spokesperson for the San Jose Police Department said they arrested on person who is suspected to be involved in a recent burglary near the Santa Clara University. A mass manhunt took place in the area around the campus earlier this week, they said. One suspect was apprehended. A second is still at large.
The search began when a resident on Newhall Street called police to alert them that two suspicious men were seen in the neighborhood. Officers were reportedly sent out to investigate. Upon arriving in the area the suspicious men were quickly located. They immediately proceeded to flee on foot. Police were able to surround the area within a short period of time. Police dogs were also employed to help with the efforts. A door-to-door search was also used as officers attempted to locate the men in question.
The individual who was apprehended was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail and was charged with burglary. His bail information was not immediately available. Oftentimes, though, Santa Clara bail amounts for this charge can range between $20,000 and $50,000 depending on the circumstances surrounding the arrest. Individuals who are not immediately bailed out will appear before a judge within three business days. It is not known whether this suspect was able to arrange a bond.
