“A Belmont man was arrested Saturday in the theft of copper pipes and wiring from a former Hewlett-Packard Corp. property in Cupertino where Apple Corp. [sic] is planning its Apple 2 campus, a sheriff’s sergeant said,” CBS SF reports.
“Glenn Cartwright, 56, was booked on Saturday into the Santa Clara County Main Jail following his arrest on suspicion of burglary and possession of burglary tools, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kurtis Stenderup said,” CBS SF reports. “Cartwright was later released on $11,000 bail, Stenderup said.”
“Apple security had noticed that a gate to the fenced-off former Hewlett-Packard office site was opened about two hours after they had last checked to make sure it was closed, Stenderup said. The security guards believed that someone was still on the property, Stenderup said,” CBS SF reports. “Deputies called a sheriff’s department helicopter to fly overhead and enlisted help from the city of Santa Clara’s K-9 unit to assist in the searching the property, Stenderup said. A police dog later located Cartwright hiding in the bushes and after he refused to comply with orders from authorities to come out, the dog was released and bit him before his arrest, Stenderup said.”
