Residential burglary suspects arrested
Submitted By Sgt. Frank Morales, Milpitas PD
On June 18, 2013, at about 8:24 a.m., an alert citizen reported two suspicious persons entering the backyard of a neighbor's home in the 2100 block of Churchill Dr. while a third person drove away in the black Nissan Altima. When the Nissan Altima returned, the citizen confronted all of the suspects as they were leaving the area with property taken from the residence. One suspect physically assaulted the citizen, and all three suspects fled in the suspect vehicle.
Milpitas officers arrived and saw the three suspects leaving the area at a high rate of speed, into a residential neighborhood in the City of Fremont. The driver lost control of the vehicle and struck a curb where two suspects immediately surrendered. The third suspect fled on foot and was arrested by Milpitas police a short time later.
The citizen who was assaulted sustained minor injuries and did not require medical attention. All of the victim's property was recovered at the scene.
Oscar Campos of San Jose was booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail for robbery, residential burglary and resisting arrest. Lizardo Burgaravelarde of San Jose and the 16 year-old juvenile were booked into the jail and Juvenile hall, respectively, for robbery and residential burglary.
