Burlingame Police Arrest Two Young Men for Attempted Burglary

The two 18-year-olds were spotted by a neighbor attempting to break into a home. They were also found in possession of stolen items from an earlier burglary.

Burlingame Police arrested two men on burglary charges Friday morning after an alert resident spotted a suspicious group of people in her neighbor's back yard.

The resident called police just before 11 a.m. Friday to report seeing a group of men walking into her neighbor's backyard on the 2100 block of Easton Drive, according to Capt. Mike Matteucci.

Police arrived in time to see four man fleeing from the home on foot. Two were apprehended, but the other two were not located, despite an extensive search of the area, Matteucci said.

Police arrested Broderick D. Pryor, 18, of San Francisco and Blake A. Green, 18, of South San Francisco on suspicion of attempted burglary and conspiracy. They were also allegedly found to be in possession of stolen property from a residential burglary that had occurred around 30 minutes earlier on the 100 block of Burlingame Avenue, and driving a stolen car from a residential burglary that occurred two days ago in Fairfield.

Police are working to determine if the suspects are connected with any other daytime burglaries in San Mateo County, Matteucci said. The outstanding suspects were described only as males of unknown race, around 18 years old and wearing dark-colored clothing.
