LOS ALTOS (BCN) — Two probation-violating suspects and one parole-violating suspect were arrested for allegedly burglarizing a Los Altos home last week, police said Monday.

The residential burglary occurred July 13 at 1:15 p.m. in the 1400 block of Richardson Avenue, according to police.

The victims had left the house for about two hours before they returned to find it ransacked, with jewelry and firearms discovered missing, police said.

Los Altos police officers were able to identify the three suspects via video surveillance. The suspects were identified as San Francisco residents Delancey Huff, 35, Robert Mandigo, 19, and Khalida Peterson, 19, according to police.

San Francisco police, responding to the alert issued by the Los Altos Police Department, located and detained each of the three suspects, as well as finding jewelry and a firearm taken during the burglary. Los Altos detectives also recovered additional stolen property at a San Francisco pawn shop, police said.

At the time of arrest, Huff was on parole for assault with a deadly weapon, while the other two were on felony probation, Mandigo for possession of an assault weapon and Peterson for possession of a controlled substance for sales.

All three were booked into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of burglary, possession of stolen property, and violating the terms of their probation or parole. Mandigo was booked for the additional allegations of possessing a firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The Los Altos Police Department would like to remind the public to be vigilant in reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods and to help prevent criminal activity by securing one’s home.
