MVPD seek help in identifying burglars

Mountain View Police detectives are seeking the public’s assistance – and home surveillance footage – to help identify two men responsible for burglarizing a garage and leading officers on a high-speed pursuit Thursday morning.

At approximately 11:30 a.m., a resident of the 1000 block of Marilyn Drive entered her garage to discover two men inside, according to a department press release. Startled, the suspects took off in a dark-gray Toyota Highlander with paper license plates, and the resident called police. An officer spotted the suspect Highlander in the area, and several patrol vehicles pursued the SUV as it traveled at a high rate of speed onto Highway 237, Highway 101 and Interstate 280 before exiting onto Bird Avenue in San Jose.

Law enforcement and emergency officials respond to the In-N-Out Burger on Rengstorff Avenue, where Mountain View police officers arrested two men for auto burglary-related crimes and assault with a deadly weapon.

Mountain View Police detectives hope the recent arrest of a pair of suspected auto burglars puts a dent in criminal activity in the parking lot of a popular fast-food restaurant.

Detectives arrested David Godfrey, 36, and Claude Frazier, 32, charging them with attempted burglary, burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime and – for ramming an officer’s vehicle with their own in a failed getaway maneuver – assault with a deadly weapon. The men, believed to be from the East Bay, were booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail March 17 and held without bail.
