  • The burglar was caught by the owner, who viewed the crime taking place via remote video surveillance.

He wasn’t much of a cat burglar, but he was taken down by a dog.

A man was arrested Wednesday night after the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office said he used his car to break in to a Redwood City business.

The business owner used remote surveillance to watch Carlos Molina-Zavala, 21, of San Jose stealing clothing from the store, Sgt. Vincent Bedolla said.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived at 2821 Middlefield Road just before midnight and staked out the scene, Bedolla said. A black Volkswagen was seen outside the business and the roll-up door at the business was seriously damaged.

Molina-Zavala was seen by police hiding inside the store, Bedolla said. He would not respond to deputies’ commands and, after reaching for his waistband, police dispatched K-9 officer Artos, who subdued Molina-Zavala until he was apprehended.

The investigation determined that Molina-Zavala used his car to ram the roll-up door to gain entry into the business and then made several trips inside to grab clothing, Bedolla said.

Molina-Zavala, who has an outstanding warrant out of Santa Clara County, was booked on charges of commercial burglary, vandalism and resisting arrest, along with the warrant.
