Burglary Suspects Arrested
Submitted By Sergeant Kevin Corvin, Milpitas PD
On June 5 at approximately 11:02 a.m., Milpitas Police Department officers responded to a report of suspicious subjects in the backyard of a residence in the 2200 block of Seacliff Drive.
The resident of the home heard someone knocking loudly on the front door of the residence but did not answer. Two subjects were seen climbing over the fence and entering the backyard and the resident yelled at them and they fled from the yard. The resident quickly telephoned 9-1-1 and reported the incident, provided subject descriptions, a detailed description of the vehicle in which the subjects fled and their route of escape.
Milpitas Police Department dispatchers broadcast the information to patrol officers within seconds of receiving the initial 9-1-1 call. Milpitas Police Department officers, heavily patrolling residential areas in order to impact an increase in residential burglaries arrived in the area of the call within three minutes. The suspect vehicle was stopped leaving the area and the three suspects within the vehicle were detained. The suspects and vehicle were identified as the people and vehicle seen at the Seacliff residence.
The suspects, two 16-year old males and one 14-year old male, all San Jose residents, were arrested for attempted burglary and conspiracy, and transported to the Milpitas Police Department for further investigation. Milpitas Police Department detectives linked the subjects to two additional Milpitas residential burglaries that occurred on May 30 and an attempted residential burglary that occurred on May 29. The subjects were later booked into the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall.
