Deputies arrest burglary suspects

Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested three men in connection with burglaries in Los Altos Hills and Saratoga following a high-speed chase that ended at Foothill College Thursday.

Deputies arrested San Francisco resident Antonio Harry, 23; Richmond resident Jalil Jones, 20; and 24-year-old Dominiq Wright of Pittsburg after a Los Altos Hills resident contacted sheriff’s deputies to report a suspicious person on the 13000 block of Robleda Road.

The responding deputy pursued the men after watching them leave the area at a high rate of speed in a silver Chevy Trailblazer. Sheriffs caught up with the trio and arrested them after they ditched the vehicle in a Foothill College parking lot and attempted to flee on foot.

Two of the men – Harry and Jones – were also wanted for questioning in connection with an earlier burglary case in Los Altos Hills.

The arrests came after the three men allegedly forced entry into a Saratoga home earlier in the day, stealing various items while a resident was asleep inside, according to Sheriff’s Office officials. A surveillance video at the home captured the images of all three suspects.
