PACIFICA (CBS SF) – A tip from an alarmed resident led to the arrest of a 26-year-old Pacifica man on Friday for kidnapping and burglary, among other things.
Shortly before 7 a.m., the police were informed of noises in an allegedly vacant apartment building on the 1100 block of Manzanita Drive. The caller went to investigate and reported seeing two people depart in a vehicle.
