Burglary suspects arrested
Submitted By Officer Trish Young, Milpitas PD
At approximately 9:18 p.m. on May 24, a victim called the Milpitas Police Department to report a suspect attempting to enter her residence. Dispatch was told that the suspects repeatedly rang the doorbell, but she didn't answer the door. The suspects then entered the backyard by jumping over a locked side gate. Milpitas Police officers, including a K-9 Unit, established a perimeter around the residence. The K-9 Unit alerted the suspects to exit the backyard or the dog would be released. The suspects jumped a fence and were located prowling in the backyard of a residence on Tiny Street. Two suspects, later identified as Yao Saechao and Chan Saechao, were taken into custody without incident.
One of the suspects was in possession of miscellaneous items which are commonly used to commit residential burglaries. A third suspect, believed to be a "lookout," was located in a parked vehicle near the victim's residence and has been identified as Chanchew Saelee. All three suspects, Sacramento residents, were booked into the Santa Clara County main jail for attempted burglary and conspiracy. Yao Saechao was also charged with possession of burglary tools.
