Early this morning, a suspicious vehicle was reported in the area of Garcia Avenue and Salado Drive. The vehicle was followed onto northbound Highway 101, and our officers conducted a high-risk car stop shortly after the car exited on Willow Road in Menlo Park. This was not a pursuit.
The driver of the car was detained without incident. The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Unit responded and rendered the area safe. Because this is an ongoing, active investigation, we will not be releasing the driver’s name or further details about the investigation at this time. We appreciate your patience and will update you as we can. For updates, you can check back here or follow us on Twitter at @MountainViewPD and on Facebook @MountainViewPoliceDepartment.
