Two Los Angeles County men have been taken into custody, accused of a rash of residential burglaries that spanned Orange, Los Angeles, and Ventura counties.
The investigation that ended in the arrests of the two suspects began when Camarillo police began investigating residential burglaries in the Mission Oaks section of Camarillo. According to KTVA News, the detectives investigating the burglaries found that they had similarities, such as the kinds of items taken and a number of “missed calls” that originated from the same telephone number.
The detectives then pieced together that similar burglaries had occurred in Thousand Oaks and Agoura Hills. The suspects were followed and identified. Camarillo Sheriffs informed the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department that a burglary might be taking place in Van Nuys and that it might involve their suspects.
Camarillo detectives caught the two suspects as they were allegedly carrying out a home invasion robbery in Van Nuys. An LA County Sheriff's deputy, who was also on the scene, shot and wounded one of the suspect's during the attempted robbery.
Both suspects are currently in LA County Jail. No bail has been set for either thus far.
Under California Penal Code Section 459, burglary is the act of entering a structure (residential, commercial, or any other type of property) with the intent to commit grand larceny, petit larceny, or any other felony.
California Penal Code Section 460 categorizes burglary into first degree burglary (which is a felony) and second degree burglary (which is a “wobbler” that can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony).
