2 arrested following burglaries at maritime stores
Two Seattle men have been arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and conspiracy after items were stolen from maritime supply stores in Sausalito and San Carlos on Wednesday, San Mateo County sheriff's deputies said.
James Francis and Stephen Dowdney, both of Seattle, were taken into custody by deputies following a traffic stop outside the West Marine Products store at 1119 Industrial Road in San Carlos, according to the sheriff's office.
Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the store to investigate a report of a possible burglary in process when they stopped a vehicle containing the suspects as the car was about to leave the scene, deputies said.
Deputies soon learned that the two men were also suspects in a burglary that occurred earlier on Wednesday at the West Marine Products business in Sausalito and that the suspects had some of the missing property with them, according to the sheriff's office.
Francis and Dowdney were booked into San Mateo County Jail and after further investigation, deputies located a number of things held by the suspects, including maritime gear, clothing, bottles of expensive wine and high-end culinary cookware.
The recovered property is still being examined, deputies said.
