String of auto break-ins reported in Adelanto

ADELANTO, Calif. ( — An Adelanto resident is warning other’s in the community about a recent rash of vehicle break-ins happening near her neighborhood.

Aura Gonzalez, of Adelanto, contacted Victor Valley News after her home surveillance system captured two men breaking into their vehicle as the family slept. The latest incident happened at about 2:25 am, on Saturday, May 5, 2018, in a residential community located near the area of Highway 395 and Mojave Drive.

The surveillance footage captured two Hispanic or White Male Adults ransacking a vehicle parked in the family’s driveway. A suspect wearing a large jacket and a backpack walks to the driver side of the car and opens the door. A second suspect on the sidewalk continues walking past the home before returning and joining the first suspect. In the video, you can see the two suspects searching the vehicle, the trunk, and under the hood. After taking what they want together they run off into the darkness, likely searching for their next victims.

Aura says she forgot to lock her car door and is very upset with herself but feel’s even worse that the thieves stole her daughter’s ballet shoes, ballet bag, and tap shoes. “If they would have taken my TV monitor I would have been mad but the kid’s stuff really hurts.”

According to Aura, deputies who took her report also informed her they were working several batterie thefts and multiple vehicle break-ins from weeks before also in the same general area.

Aura is part of a online community where people with doorbell and surveillance cameras in her neighborhood join and discuss similar topics.  Over the past several weeks, at least five of her online peers have been victimized and almost all of them reported seeing two male subjects with backpacks walking around the area of Mojave and 395 between 12-4am.

“Knowing that we are not alone makes it worse because I know it’s going to continue to happen until they are caught,” stated Aura.

People are encouraged to remember to lock their vehicle and houses, as well as secure all valuables from unattended vehicles.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station at (760)956-5001 or contact Deputy C. Porter at (760)552-6800 and reference case # 241801119.
