Resident Reports Vehicle Burglaries, 3 Juveniles Arrested

On November 22, 2019 around 4:00am in the morning, an alert resident phoned into the police department reporting subjects were burglarizing vehicles. The criminal activity was reported in the 700 block of Castlewood Court in Fairfield. The resident was able to provide a description of those involved and which way they went so officers in the area could look for them. This information proved useful as one of the officers located a vehicle with subjects matching the description reported.

Through the investigation, the officers were able to determine the individuals were involved in the criminal activity. A search of the subjects and the vehicle revealed they were in possession of a ski mask and window punches. Other officers responded to the area in an effort to locate vehicles that had been burglarized. The search and information from the reporting parties showed the subjects were entering vehicles, but no evidence of stolen items could be determined.

Three juveniles, two of which were 16 years old and one 17 year old, all from Vallejo were arrested for possession of burglary tools, tampering with vehicles and conspiracy to commit a crime. The juvenile who was driving, was found to be unlicensed and was arrested for driving without a license as well. All three juveniles were issued citations to appear in court and turned over to their parents or legal guardians.

Officers and detectives have looked into whether this incident has a connection to the vehicles broken into days prior in the same area. There is no information to link the two incidents together at this time, but detectives are still actively working the first incident of vehicle burglaries in an effort to identify those responsible.  
Thank you to those who called in and reported this suspicious behavior. Please keep vigilant and continue to call in when you see something suspicious. Much of the information provided to police by the resident was recovered through surveillance cameras they had installed. It’s unfortunate we have to think this way, but having cameras is a great way to catch criminals in the act or deter them from committing the crime altogether.
