Residential Burglary with Animal Cruelty Investigation

Fremont Police are seeking the public’s assistance to help identify two suspects wanted in connection with a residential burglary and animal cruelty.

On August 28, 2015, Fremont Police Officers responded to the 40800 block of Amapola Drive to investigate a residential burglary where a family dog was injured.  At approximately 1:30 p.m. a resident living on the 40800 block of Amapola Drive called Fremont Dispatch to report a burglary had occurred at their home.  Patrol officers responded to the residence and met with the victims.  The victims provided officers with their private video surveillance evidence, indicating the burglary occurred earlier in the day at 9:45 a.m.   Officers believe that at least two unknown suspects jumped the homeowners side fence to gain access into the backyard.  Once in the yard, they looked through the windows and eventually shattered the locked rear sliding glass door with an unknown object.  The suspects then entered the residence and ransacked several rooms.  The suspects left the residence with jewelry and cash.

In addition to committing the burglary, the suspects provided food to the family’s dog by throwing it on the shattered glass.   The dog consumed the food which caused injury and bleeding to its’ mouth.  The dog has been treated for its injuries and is expected to recover.

Suspect # 1 is described as a Hispanic male adult, 18 - 25 years of age, 5'8" to 5'10" with a medium build, 170 to 185 lbs., short dark colored hair and a distinctive goatee. The suspect was wearing a plain white tee shirt, tan colored cargo pants and black mechanics gloves.

Suspect #2 can be seen in the video for a brief moment but not long enough for a description.
