SARATOGA -- Two San Jose men suspected in a string of burglaries were arrested Thursday in the area around Prospect High School, where several vehicles were broken into, according to sheriff's officials.

The men were arrested after a Santa Clara County sheriff's deputy patrolling the area of Kosich and Obrad drives saw a man acting suspiciously, hiding behind a parked car around 5:45 a.m. When approached, the man ran off and deputies flooded the area to search for him, bringing in a police dog from Sunnyvale.

While canvassing the area, deputies noticed that several vehicles had been burglarized. After an extensive search they found Andrew Villarreal and arrested him, according to a news release.

"While deputies were interviewing Villarreal, they determined that he had an accomplice in the area," states the release. Enrique Rodriguez was found sitting in Villarreal's truck in a nearby parking lot.

Deputies searching the truck discovered property that had been stolen in burglaries in neighboring cities.

Villareal and Rodriguez, both 32, were booked into Santa Clara County Jail on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, vandalism, possession of burglary tools and probation violation.

Villareal is in custody on $33,000 bail, while Rodriguez is being held without bail.
