Daily Post Staff Writer

Mountain View police have arrested three men in connection with a rash of car burglaries in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale and Cupertino, police said yesterday (June 19).

Troy Collins, 25, of Sacramento and Paul Edwards, 29, and Marcus Anigilaje, 39, both of Oakland, were arrested after someone told police that they were driving along San Antonio Road around 7:40 p.m. Tuesday (June 18).

The trio had been identified as suspects through a months-long investigation by Mountain View, Los Altos and Sunnyvale police along with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office.

Mountain View police were notified Tuesday night that the three were driving toward El Camino Real in a black Infiniti sedan.

Officers surrounded the car and ordered them to come out. All three were arrested without incident on suspicion of burglary, possessing burglary tools and receiving stolen property.

Police said they found burglary tools and a laptop in the car. It’s unclear whether the laptop was stolen.

Collins, Edward and Anigilaje are being held without bail.

Collins is being housed at the Santa Clara County Main Jail in San Jose, while Edwards and Anigilaje are at the Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas.
