Bay Area 'traveling burglary crew' arrested in Hollister

Four Bay Area residents described as members of a "traveling burglary crew" have been arrested by Hollister police in San Benito County after a car chase, police said.

At about 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, two officers from the Hollister Police Department attempted to stop a vehicle on San Felipe Road but the driver led them on a chase to other areas of the county, Officer Bo Leland said.

As the officers pursued the vehicle, they observed people inside throwing various items from it, according to Leland.

The driver finally stopped in the 800 block of Bonnie View Road in Hollister, where police arrested Christopher Montoya, 28, of Gilroy; Andrea Quintero, 39, of Santa Clara; Stephen Lee, 25, of Salinas; and Miguel Aguayo-Cesena, 26, of Gilroy.

All four were booked into San Benito County Jail on suspicion of evading a police officer with willful disregard, conspiracy to commit a crime, destruction of evidence and possession of burglary tools.

Lee was also arrested on a warrant for an alleged parole violation.

Hollister police Chief David Westrick said in a statement that since the suspects were from different cities outside the county, the department is "considering the prospect that this was a traveling burglary crew."

Police are working with other law enforcement agencies in the region to tie the four suspects to burglaries and stolen car reports currently under investigation, Westrick said.

Two injured in South Lake Tahoe hotel fire

Fire officials at South Lake Tahoe are investigating the cause of a blaze that did more than $2 million damage to a two-story hotel on Ski Run Boulevard and sent two people to the hospital.

South Lake Tahoe Fire Chief Jeff Meston told Lake Tahoe News the two injured jumped from the second-story balcony after the fire broke out about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday at the Deerfield Lodge west of the casino district.

They were taken to Barton Memorial Hospital where their condition was unknown.

Meston says all six rooms in the back building were destroyed along with six vehicles.

Firefighters had the blaze under control by 2:35 a.m. Meston says crews kept the flames from spreading to the front of the hotel.

Thirty-five hotel guests were transported to the Lakeside Inn for the night.

Nearly 25,000 baby monitors recalled in the U.S.

Mayborn USA has recalled baby monitors in the U.S. and Canada due to a strangulation hazard.

The recalled Tommee Tippee® Movement and Sound Baby Monitors with Sensor Pads products include models 1082S and 1094S. According to the consumer product safety commission, nearly 25,000 have been recalled in the U.S and 3,500 in Canada.

Both models come with a sensor pad that fits under the baby’s crib mattress and sounds an alarm if no movement is detected for 20 seconds.  No injuries have been reported, but officials said the products come with a 10-foot cord that runs from the pad to the baby monitor. It is said that a baby can pull the sensor pad cord around his/her neck, deeming it hazardous.

Consumers are advised to immediately make sure all monitor cords are out of reach of children and to contact Mayborn USA for a free cord kit. The kit will include a new permanent electric cord warning label about the strangulation risk, and revised instructions.
