San Mateo police credit public with help nabbing crooks
April 06, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff

Two recent burglary arrests by San Mateo police are a direct result of neighbors sharing video surveillance and public safety agencies working together, according to the department which encourages the community to continue the effort.

San Mateo police have been offering safety tips to the public and asking neighborhoods to keep their eyes open for suspicious activity as it addresses an increase in daytime residential burglaries.

At about 11:15 p.m. March 8, patrol officers stopped a suspicious group of males in the Shoreview neighborhood and arrested Danny Saetern, 21, of Oakland, on suspicion of possessing burglary tools, providing false information to a police officer and having a parole hold.

Police detectives linked Saetern to a dark minivan spotted in surveillance video collected from Shoreview and Fiesta Gardens neighbors after two burglaries in late February and early March. He was further charged with burglary and attempted burglary while detectives continue investigating his possible involvement in additional crimes.

On March 21, video surveillance showed a distinctive-looking white pickup truck parked in front of a residence on the 3400 block of Shasta Drive moments before it was burglarized. Information about the truck was shared with other Bay Area agencies and, several days later, a Redwood City police detective found it in the parking lot of a San Carlos motel. The truck's owner, Vince Tringali, 48, was linked to the burglary and arrested.
