On Tuesday, August 7, 2012, at approximately 1000 hours, a uniformed patrol deputy from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office Headquarters Patrol Bureau conducted an enforcement stop on a vehicle for having an inoperable brake light at the intersection of Arroyo Avenue and Elm Street, in the City of San Carlos. 

Other deputies from the Sheriff’s Office San Carlos Police Bureau responded to assist him. During the traffic stop and the ensuing investigation the deputies learned the driver, later identified as Marcos Patino was driving with a suspended driver’s license. The deputies also discovered that Patino and his passenger, a 16 year old male juvenile, were in possession of burglary tools and several items that were stolen in automobile burglaries from the cities of Fremont and Belmont. Both Patino and the juvenile reside in Fremont.

Patino was subsequently arrested and booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility for driving with a suspended license, conspiracy, burglary, possessing burglary tools and for possession of stolen property.  The juvenile was also arrested and booked into the Youth Services Center for conspiracy, burglary, and possessing stolen property.
