Teen charged with burglary posts bail
December 31, 2016, 05:00 AM

A Santa Clara woman charged with five counts of residential burglary this month posted $100,000 bail and is out of custody, according to the San Mateo District Attorney’s Office.

Briana Ortega, 18, was arrested Dec. 14 in relation to five residential burglaries along the Peninsula between November and December, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Ortega was allegedly one of four suspects who burglarized homes in San Carlos, Redwood City and San Mateo between Nov. 30 and Dec. 14. The group of burglars stole firearms, laptops, electronics and other items from the homes. Ortega was the getaway driver for all of the burglaries, according to prosecutors.

Officers found stolen property from each of the burglaries at Ortega’s Santa Clara address. She was granted a court-appointed lawyer and pleaded not guilty. Her next court appearance is Mar. 9, according to prosecutors.
