Two teens arrested for Antioch home burglary, Wednesday
By Corporal Rick Smith, Antioch Police Community Policing Bureau
On Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 1:30 PM, Antioch police officers were summoned to the 2800 block of Vista Way. A witness, knowing the residents were not home at this time, called and reported seeing two subjects enter into the side yard. Both subjects were seen at the front door just prior to this.
When officers arrived on scene, they found the residence forced open. During a check of the interior, an adult male and juvenile male were located. They were in the process of ransacking the interior and placing items from the residence into bags. Both attempted to flee, but were quickly apprehended. Both had several items belonging to the victims on their person at the time of arrest.
The juvenile, a 17-year-old male was later booked into Juvenile Hall and the adult, an 18-year-old male was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility. This apprehension was thanks to the alertness and cooperation of neighborhood residents.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Antioch Police Department at (925) 778-2441. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using key word “ANTIOCH”.
