On Sunday, February 26, 2012, at 9:34 a.m. the resident manager of a storage facility reported suspicious persons at the facility. The manager reported two male subjects may have entered the facility without the proper entry code. The subjects were currently removing items from one of the storage lockers.
When officers arrived they found San Jose residents Daniel Gonzalez and Nouman Saleh removing items from an opened storage locker. A U-haul van they were driving was parked nearby. The rear cargo door was open and numerous items were inside. Further investigation revealed they had cut off the padlock to the locker. The customers who rented the locker came to the facility and identified several items of their stolen property in the van. Saleh was in possession of stolen property from an unreported burglary of a storage locker in Santa Clara. The investigation of several other locker burglaries at the location is on-going.
Gonzalez was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for Burglary, Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Burglary Tools, Providing a False Name to an Officer, Possession of an Illegal Narcotic, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Saleh was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for Burglary, Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Burglary Tools, Possession of an Illegal Narcotic, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
