Three people — including a brother and sister employed by an equestrian center — were arrested in Newark Friday for burglarizing a Woodside home sometime between November and April, San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies reported.
Cassandra Jane Chislett, 19, and her brother Colin Chislett-Barnes, 23, were taken into custody at their Newark residence while the third suspect, Nathan Keith, 26, was booked on a $250,000 warrant for grand theft, possession of stolen property and burglary while already in custody in the Alameda County Jail on unrelated charges, according to police.
The burglary was of a detached residential garage where antique rugs, carousel horses, a rocking horse and a horse saddle, among other items, were being stored. It appeared entry was made into the garage by cutting the lock of the roll-up garage door. The total loss is estimated to be in excess of $100,000. Some of the stolen items have already been recovered, according to police.
The brother and sister said they are both employed at their family’s business, Chislett Equestrian Centre in Woodside, and are known by the victim. Both were transported to the San Mateo County Jail and booked on $250,000 warrants for grand theft, possession of stolen property and burglary, according to police.
