Alert Citizen aids Newark Police
Submitted By Newark PD
On November 18, 2012 at approximately 3:00 p.m., Officers of the Newark Police Department were dispatched to the 6800 block of Cedar Boulevard to investigate a report of three suspicious people not known to the neighborhood "lurking" around a residence. Based on the quick actions of the caller, officers arrived on scene and surrounded the residence in question.
As officers approached the residence they found the front door was open and contacted David Galvan, Oscar Iniguez and Lena Faitague. The trio was in the process of removing items from the interior of the residence when contacted by officers. All three were arrested for residential burglary.
This case is a prime example of a resident being vigilant and not justifying the actions of suspicious people who are not known to the neighborhood. The Newark Police Department would like to thank those members of our community that have called to report crimes. Additionally we would like to encourage others to notify police when suspicious activity is occurring.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is requested to call the Newark Police Department at (510) 578-4237. Information can also be left anonymously on the "Silent Witness" hotline: (510) 578-4000, extension 500.
