Palo Alto, CA - On August 6, 2008, at approximately 7 p.m., Palo Alto Police Detectives arrested 18 year old Carlos Mancilla of East Palo Alto. The suspect was arrested in the 400 block of East O’Keefe Street in East Palo Alto. Palo Alto Detectives were able to associate the suspect with the Greer Road burglary that occurred earlier in the day as a result of evidence left at the scene of the crash of the suspects' car on I-880 in Fremont.

This arrest was the result of a collaborative effort between Palo Alto and East Palo Alto Police. East Palo Alto Police assisted in this investigation by offering valuable intelligence concerning possible suspect locations. 

Mancilla was booked into the San Jose Main Jail on charges consisting of residential burglary, possession of stolen property, and felony evading arrest.  

Further investigation will be conducted to determine the identity and whereabouts of a possible second suspect.
