APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Two Apple Valley men were arrested for multiple criminal offenses following a search warrant on Tuesday.
On July 8, 2021, Deputy D. Vallejo from the Apple Valley Police Department responded to the 19000 block of Seneca Road for a burglary report.
The victim reported she hired a subject later identified as 30-year-old Corey Wyatt to do some work at her residence, officials said.
According to a sheriff’s news release, “not long after the subject left, she received notifications from her bank that someone attempted to use her bank card. The victim later noticed her checkbook, wallet containing her credit cards, and identification cards were missing.”
