Barstow Police arrest couple for burglary and receiving stolen property

BARSTOW, Calif. ( — A Barstow couple was arrested for multiple charges after they were spotted removing a license plate from their vehicle and possibly breaking into stores at the outlets, officials said.

The suspects Damian Wisdom 31, and Lachey Jackson 28, were arrested on December 28, 2019, following a traffic stop near the Tanger Outlets in Barstow.

According to Sgt. Benitez from the Barstow Police Department, at about 2:30 am, dispatch received a call for service after the suspects were observed removing a license plate from their vehicle and possibly breaking into stores at “The Outlets at Barstow” officials said.

“Corporal Cardenas responded and spotted the suspect vehicle leaving the location with an inoperable tail light as described by the reporting party. Officers noticed that the license plates had been covered and conducted a traffic stop for the above vehicle code violations and to conduct a burglary investigation,” stated a news release.

The Corporal approached the vehicle and noticed a large U-Haul box in the rear seat and decided to detain the driver and passenger.

“Corporal Cardenas went back to the area where the subjects were last seen by the reporting party and located a U-Haul truck that had been broken into. The owner was contacted and transported to the stop location where he immediately identified all of his stolen property with a value of $4650.00 which was recovered and returned to the victim,” stated police officials.
