Emmett man allegedly part of home invasion in California

Holden David Falk, 20, is currently in jail in Santa Clara County, awaiting a July 28 court date on robbery, burglary and kidnapping charges, according to police and county records.

Falk was arrested July 5 with another man, Aaron Lamont Steward, 24, of East Palo Alto, Calif., for an unspecified crime that occurred in San Jose.

After the arrest, police say they found property stolen during a July 3 home invasion in the city of Los Gatos. According to a press release describing the robbery, two masked men approached another man late that night inside that resident’s open garage. One of the masked men had a handgun, the other a knife.

The masked men forced the resident into his home where they also confronted a woman, then “ransacked” the house. The masked men fled with electronics, money and jewelry.

Neither of the residents of the home were hurt.

The Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police Department also asked the public’s help to get more information about Falk and Steward. Anyone who can help should call 408-354-8600.
