Belmont mailman delivers crooks to cops 

Here's some junk mail. A hero mailman working his route in Belmont delivered three burglars to cops Monday afternoon, police said.

The mailman called 911 after spotting three suspicious men at a home on Yorkshire Way and noticing an open gate to the backyard of the residence, Belmont police said.

Responding cops arrested the suspects without incident. The trio was found in possession of items from the home, police said. Detectives are investigating whether the suspects are responsible for other crimes.

The suspects were identified Tuesday as Tele Matangi, 23, of Belmont; Tavasa Pale, 18, of East Palo Alto; and Erik Palomarescabrera, 18, of East Palo Alto. All three were booked into county jail in Redwood City on charges of residential burlgary, possession of stolen property and conspiracy, police said.
