Deputies uncover youth burglary ring

During a search of the teens’ homes, authorities recovered a large amount of stolen electronics valued at approximately $30,000.

LANCASTER – Three local teenagers – ages 14, 15, and 16 – were arrested Tuesday for allegedly taking part in a burglary ring that carried out at many as 10 burglaries in Lancaster, authorities said.

In connection with the arrests, authorities recovered approximately $30,000 worth of stolen electronics, including computers, game systems, televisions and DVD players.

The following is the press report from the Lancaster Station:

Lancaster Station received a call [around 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 14] of a “disturbance” at a gas station located at 5th Street East and Avenue K in Lancaster.

When the deputies arrived, they detained three juveniles who were responsible for the disturbance.

During the detention, the deputies quickly realized that the trio matched the description of three suspects who had committed a burglary a few hours earlier.

During a search of the Juveniles, the deputies found several pieces of jewelry and other items that had been reported stolen during the earlier burglary. All three juveniles were arrested and taken to Lancaster Station, and the case was immediately assigned to Lancaster Station’s Burglary Suppression Team.

On Wednesday morning (Aug. 15), the team obtained search warrants for each of the juvenile’s homes. During the search of the homes, the team recovered a large amount of stolen electronic items, including computers, game systems, televisions and DVD players. The stolen property was valued at approximately thirty thousand dollars.

The investigation is ongoing, but so far, the Burglary Suppression Team has been able to link some of the stolen items to five recent residential burglaries and believe the three juveniles may be responsible for as many as ten burglaries in the city of Lancaster.

    Get over it! The teens are black/African-American. The parents are the enablers and teach their children how to steal. This has gone on for many generations. The truth hurts, but that’s what it is. A parent has the right to search their child’s room to see if anything is there that does not belong, and question the child. But instead they are blind to the fact that their child/children are thieves. Career criminals. It is sad to see the black race behaving in such a very distasteful manner. Going to jail is modern day slavery that they (blacks) will never escape as they do not know another way out. I feel sorry for all children that wind up in jail because their parents either taught them to be criminals or did not give a damn about their well-being.

      The men touching little children and shooting and killing hordes of people at a time are White men. Their wives/families are enablers and turn a blind eye to their sick fetishes. This has gone on for many generations.

      The truth hurts, but that’s what it is.

      Killing and touching little kids trumps stealing any day of the week.

      The White people are sick, maniacal deviants who need to be extinguished from society. The family members and spouses of these sick twisted white people turn a blind eye to the fact that their brethrens are disgusting child touching perverts and killers. Career sickos and criminals.

      The last WHITE person to shoot up a place killed 12 people and wounded 59 others. When will the mass shootings and the sickness in the WHITE RACE end???

      Going to jail is modern day slavery that they (WHITES) will never escape as they do not know another way out of their sick twisted perverted fetishes and they are all psychotic sociopaths.

      I feel sorry for all white children that wind up in jail because their parents either taught that it okay to play with guns or did not give a damn about their well-being.

      Because the majority of mass killing in America has been committed by white people and the majority of priests touching little altar boys are white men, I truly believe ALL WHITE PEOPLE are sick disgusting perverted killers and embarrassments to their race!!!!!

        Nice try Letlow (codename for “downlow”)

        You blacks molest just as often as white people do, you just scare the kids and intimidate them into keeping quiet.

        You are also just as perverted as white people too. Like this story about a black kid raping his GRANDMOTHER because he couldn’t get a girlfriend:

        20-Year-Old Man Caught by His Father Trying to Rape His Grandmother ‘Because He Couldn’t Get a Girlfriend’

        What kind of sick, twisted bastard tries to rape their grandmother? oh, nevermind….

        And lets have an honest discussion about blacks and crime…why is it that when black people start moving to a place the crime rate also starts skyrocketing? Always! Murders, thefts, drug rings, burglary rings, rapes, gang activity…doesn’t matter, black people always bring it with them and ruin every place they go.

        You could take black people to the moon and the crime rate would go up!

          As much as I would like to, I can not take credit for that gem of a post. I did have a hell of a laugh reading it though.

          But it goes against what I have been shouting to the high heavens ever since I began posting here: Criminals are people with bad intent. This bad intent has nothing to do with their RACE but everything to do with their lack of morals, common sense, integrity, etc. It’s too ridiculous to even contemplate how people can label the thinking of others based on the pigmentation of their skin.

          Oh, and just so we’re clear. If I was gay I would have no need to be downlow about it. I would be gay and damn proud!! Gay people ROCK!!!

            Why be “proud” of being gay or straight? It’s just a sexual orientation. Can you imagine the uproar if there was a “straight pride” parade? All this pride is ridiculous.

          @ True
          My name is not “Letlow” and obviously it is not “Unknown” either. I am a reporter out of Los Angeles who stumbled across this website while looking for pics of the suspects in the baby formula crime ring. I requested and was granted permission to use the AV Times’ pictures.

          I also stuck around a bit to gauge the temperament of the AV. I even got sucked into the discussions and made a comment or two. Judging by the comments here, the AV is just as backward as it was 20 years ago.

          I almost made the mistake of moving to Lancaster in the early 90s. So glad to have dodged that bullet! Have fun in your den of hatred, intolerance and bigotry. This site has given me enough to last another 20 years.

          And FYI… I am Korean

    No where in the article does it mention race, yet you people jump on here quick to condemn “these black people.”

    Where do you stand on the article that actually states that the WHITE soccer coach touched little boys for the past 16 years? Or the WHITE flasher? How about the WHITE teacher that sexed up her little student a couple months back? Should we now assume that every sexual predator is WHITE?

    What about the three WHITE guys on trial right now for attempted murder and the other little racist thing at the mall?

    I’ve always said that bad people are bad, no matter how much melanin their skin contains. But it seems you people (you know who you are) ONLY condemn the black crimes, and the stories on white criminals sail through this site with no comment. That makes YOU RACIST!!

    • Seriously??
      August 16, 2012 at 6:26 pm

      “racist” “racist” “racist”…is that the only word you people know?

      Here’s the difference dipshit…

      White people know enough to condemn our own people when they do stupid things. We don’t go defending them and We Sure As Hell Don’t celebrate it and we dont make a bunch of PATHETIC excuses for them when they get in trouble.

      You dont see white people idolizing child molesters, flashers or serial killers the way the black community idolizes pimps, thugs, thieves, murderers, rapists and people who just love to create mayhem.

        First of all, what’s with the juvenile name calling?

        Second of all, why are you making sweeping generalizations about entire races of people? Surely, you don’t believe that you speak for all White people, do you?

        If you believe that, then there is no point in me carrying this discussion any further.

            Okay, so where is the condemnation of the twisted pervert who showed his bits to the lady at the gas station? No comment under that story.

            Also, “Seriously” has yet to make an appearance in the comments section under the article about the nasty ass soccer coaching touching young boys.

            17 comments already under this burglary story (assuming the little thugs are black) and half that amount of comments under the soccer coach story.

            See where I’m going with this? I don’t think that White criminals are sufficiently condemned on this site.

            Like I have stated every single time (and will state again just for good measure) I condemn ALL CRIMINALS regardless of race. And that’s how it should be!

            I believe Seriously’s comments DID condemn them. In case I’m wrong though, here you go: I despise all those crooks listed above! Send them all to the big house, and let Bubba be their cellmate. Nothing worse than crimes against kids. Let’s be real though, most of the thievery (the subject of THIS story) in this Valley is being committed by blacks. If I’m wrong about this group, I’ll be the first to say I was wrong.

            so basically you’re pissed about outcomes? Why should we rush to the article about the soccer perv when we all know what he did was sick and wrong? I see how you never condemned these hoodrats so I guess that means you condone what they did? You black people are notorious for being quiet when little ghetto hoodrats act up. You even stoop as low as defending their obnoxious behavior which is something we white people NEVER do when our kids act up!

            Condemn the criminal behavior, but why condemn a race?

            Ah, never mind. I’ve given up on making this point. I concede.. think whatever you want. Just don’t bring your profiling to my doorstep.

            I don’t care what color these People are it should not be a factor, however ask any inmate currently in county and 85% will tell you they were innocent and were framed by the police yet looking at the evidence presented against them is usually cut and dry guilt. Until we as a society (NO MATTER WHAT RACE) step up and condemn all these criminals and stop glorifying the act it will never change. The guy molesting little boys is a disgusting pervert Criminals need to be made to understand we are not going to take their crap anymore!!! And in my opinion the people that support and glorify their behavior are just as guilty of crimes as the criminal themselves

      Not really! These little shitheads will be rotting in jail before their 21st birthdays!

      I find all of this crime with black youth to be interesting. I am told by a black coworker how “religious” black folks are, how “close to God” they supposedly are and how they never miss a church service and all of that. Cool. I went to church too as a kid and I was taught in Sunday never to steal anything from anyone. But I did and then I paid holy hell for it!

      i was also taught that if you stole something you would get your ass beat by mom and then by dad when he got home from work, and then you would have the embarrassment of having to return the stuff you stole to whoever you stole it from and then go to church and tell the pastor what I did. For me, it was stealing a tiny dinosaur toy from a dime store that incurred all of that wrath.

      These black people who are saying that they are “religious” and “close to God” have the wool pulled over their own eyes! Their kids are a direct reflection of this too. What sane parent doesn’t notice $10,000 or $20,000 worth of items suddenly show up that their kid didn’t have two days ago? better yet, what parent notices it and then ignores it or fails to ask questions about where it came from?

      If these kids were stealing food or clothes I could almost understand and maybe be a little sympathetic, but they arent! They are stealing jewelry and technological equipment and dvds, etc. They are stealing things strictly for the pleasure of stealing and not out of survival.

          Let’s see now, only the last FIVE juvenile burglary rings reported about on this site were black boys. All of a sudden they wont be? Really?

          They go around and brag about it what they stole to their homies who then turn around and form their own burglary rings thinking they’ll never be caught like the homies were. The problem is their stupidity catches up with them every time.

            I think I know why they don’t notice.
            I saw it when a thug was convicted of murdering two college students, throwing their dead bodies out of their jeep into the street, then eating their lunch they had just bought. His whailing mama screamed out in court when he was convicted saying:
            My baby don’t hurt nobody, my baby don’t hurt nobody—All he did be take day car, he no hurt nobody. You can guess what shade she was.
            Its the blinders of mama’s that has condemned entire generations of young black ment to prisons. There is a cultural sickness that is excusing the worst behavior of these young men while their mothers and girlfriends blame whitey, the man and racism when they need to contemplate their own navals.
