On September 24, 2012, at approximately 2:15 p.m., Milpitas police officers responded to the 1600(b) of McCandless Drive on a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area. The occupants of the vehicle were seen accessing a vacant commercial building on McCandless Drive after parking their vehicle on Houret Court and sneaking through a hole in a chain link fence. Officers quickly arrived on scene and began setting up a perimeter around the vacant building. The suspects were apprehended as they exited the building after stripping metal and wire from within the building. All three men were identified, arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.
Gregory Matthew Mackin and Jeremy Allen Ring, both of San Jose were arrested for commercial burglary. Ty Scott Thurston, also of San Jose, attempted to flee from the officers and was arrested for commercial burglary and resisting arrest.
