Three people were arrested, and a gun was seized after San Francisco police tracked down a vehicle suspected in an auto burglary earlier this week, according to authorities.

Officers spotted the vehicle around 10:15 a.m. Monday after a car break-in was reported nearby in Alamo Square Park, San Francisco police said in a press release Wednesday.

Officers saw a man, later identified as 51-year-old Jose Carreno, apparently buying items from someone in the suspect vehicle, SFPD added.

Officers detained Carreno after the vehicle drove off and stolen items from the Alamo Square burglary were recovered from his possession, police said.

Officers later took two East Bay residents from the suspect vehicle into custody in Oakland: Daevon Hudson, 23, of Antioch and Armani Tolliver, 22, of Pittsburg.

A search of the vehicle turned up a firearm, burglary tools, more stolen items and cash, authorities said.

The recovered property was returned to the Alamo Square victims, according to SFPD.

Hudson was booked on over a dozen charges, including weapons offenses, vehicle code violations and conspiracy, while Tolliver was booked on charges of burglary, theft and conspiracy, according to police. Carreno was arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen goods.

“We will not tolerate people breaking into vehicles in our city,” SFPD Chief Bill Scott said, vowing to continue using bait cars and surveillance to combat burglaries.
