Deputies Arrest Two Suspects in Residential Burglary Following 911 Call
ROSSMOOR, Calif. – (July 28, 2014) – On Monday, July 21, 2014, Orange County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residential burglary in-progress in the Rossmoor community. As deputies arrived, two male subjects fled on foot from the rear of the residence, jumping over fences onto the property of adjacent homes in the neighborhood. After coordination of responding deputies, two male juveniles were detained and taken into custody for residential burglary.
The informant to the Sheriff’s Department was a 14 year-old female who was inside the residence when the two male juveniles attempted to make entry through several doors and windows. The 14 year-old hid inside a bedroom closet and called 911, providing dispatchers with information about what was occurring, ultimately leading to arrests of the two suspects. The quick actions and calm demeanor demonstrated by the young informant led to an immediate response and arrest of the suspects.
The investigation is ongoing; however, investigators believe the suspects may be connected to other recent burglaries and thefts in the area.
The suspects were arrested and booked into Orange County Juvenile Hall.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff’s Department North Investigations Unit at (714) 647-7060 or (714) 647-7000. Anonymous tips may also be submitted to Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227) or at occrimestoppers.org.
