Burglary suspects apprehended
Submitted By Sergeant T. Young-Orth, Milpitas PD
On July 29, 2012 at 8:34 P.M., Milpitas police officers responded to a commercial building for an activated burglary alarm. Officers arrived within three minutes, established a perimeter around the business and saw Kevin Hawkins (San Jose resident) exiting an enclosed area through a hole in the fence. Kevin Hawkins was taken into custody without incident. Officers also observed Aaron Cameron (San Jose resident) on the roof of the business. He attempted to flee by sliding down a pole attached to the outside of the building, but was apprehended by awaiting officers.
Burglary tools recovered at the scene included pipe wrenches, a hacksaw, bolt cutters and a battery-powered screwdriver. These types of tools are commonly used to cut copper wiring and remove recyclable metals from commercial buildings. Milpitas Police Officers determined Hawkins was on probation for narcotics violations and Cameron was on parole for theft.
Kevin Hawkins and Aaron Cameron were both booked into the Santa Clara County jail for burglary and conspiracy. Anyone with any information regarding any suspicious or criminal activity involving these two suspects is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department.
We would also encourage citizens to call the police when any suspicious activity is seen or heard.
