Advisory: OC Sheriff’s Airship “Duke” Assists SAPD Officers In Taking 2 Burglary Suspects Into Custody

Arrested: Stephone Jawonn Fellows (27) Los Angeles –Burglary, Conspiracy to Commit Crime, Resisting Peace Officer and Bianca Renee McNair (25) Santa Ana – Burglary, Conspiracy to Commit Crime

On 8-31-2015 at 8:50 am, a resident reported seeing a suspicious male knocking on his neighbor’s door. When the male received no answer at the door, he went through the side yard to the rear of the residence and out of sight. Responding officers requested the assistance of Orange County Sheriff’s Airship “Duke.”

The suspect, matching the description provided by witnesses was located by Duke in the rear yard of a residence where two window screens had been removed. When Duke arrived on scene the suspect observed the airship and ran out of the yard, entering the passenger side of a vehicle. Duke directed responding units to the vehicle, and a car stop was conducted. The male subject fled from the vehicle and ran through the apartment complex at the northeast corner of Fairview and Segerstrom.

The female driver was taken into custody without incident at the stop. A SAPD motor officer located the suspect in the apartment complex and had to deploy his Taser to take him into custody. Further investigation showed the male suspect Fellows had successfully forced entry into the garage of a residence in the 3000 block of South Griset; however, it appears the crime was interrupted by the arrival of DUKE on scene.
