Prowling suspects arrested
Submitted By Sgt. Frank Morales, Milpitas PD
On March 15, 2013, at about 12:08pm, Milpitas police officers responded to the 100-blk of Washington Dr. on a report of two Newark resident teenagers attempting to burglarize a residence. The first officer arrived on scene in about 70 seconds. Two teenagers matching the description were located and detained nearby, and the victim identified them as the same people attempting to burglarize the residence.
During the investigation it was determined that the female suspect knocked on the front door of the residence to see if anyone was home. After no one came to answer the door, the male suspect attempted to open a side gate leading into the backyard. The victim yelled out to the suspects and they fled from the residence.
Both juveniles were arrested and booked into Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall for conspiracy to commit a crime, prowling and providing false identification to a police officer. Additionally, the male suspect was charged with probation violation.
