Two Juveniles Behind Bars for Burglarizing a Probation Officers Vehicle

VICTORVILLE-(  Two male juveniles were arrested as a result of a vehicle burglary that took place on January 27, 2016. Deputies from the Victorville station responded to the scene where they spoke with the San Bernardino County Probation Officer, who was the victim of the incident. He told them that among the items stolen were handguns, a taser, a flashlight and other related gear.

On the same day, a homeowner from the 13400 block of Abbot Street in Victorville called to report found property. When deputies responded to the call they were able to recover a taser holder, flashlight and other items that belonged to the victim.

The theft sparked a collaborative investigation with deputies, detectives and members of the Gang Detail from the Victorville station. On February 14th, a deputy from the Victorville station made contact with a 17-year-old male from Victorville in response to a  suspicious person report in the area of El Dorado Way and La Mesa Road. The juvenile was found to be in possession of a taser that was determined to be from the January 27th burglary. The suspect was arrested and booked into the High Desert Juvenile Detention Facility.

Throughout the investigation detectives from the Victorville Station made contact with several subjects and were able to recover photos of juveniles holding a taser and handguns. The taser and handguns were similar to the weapons that were reported stolen on January 27th.

On Saturday, February 19th, deputies from the Victorville Station Gang Detail began to track down several leads. As a result, deputies made contact with a 15-year-old Adelanto boy on the 13600 block of Sylvan Oaks Street in Victorville. San Bernardino County officials said that in the bedroom where the suspect was found, two firearms were also found, one of which belonged to the victim. During the interview with the suspect, he told deputies that the other stolen gun was sold to his brother. Deputies were able to recover the gun from a third suspect.

The report will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s office to determine the charges that the suspects will face. Anyone with information on about this case is asked to contact Detective Maddox, at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78CRIME (27436) or
