The Lancaster Station burglary suppression team has been investigating a series of commercial burglaries on and in the vicinity of Lancaster Blvd.
A burglary suppression team member proved invaluable when he saw two individuals walking on Lancaster Blvd who closely resembled the suspects he had seen in video surveillance footage from some of the commercial burglaries.
As a result of the burglary suppression team’s skilled detective work, a search warrant was written and served at the subjects’ residence. Property was recovered during the service of the search warrant that had been reported stolen during the recent commercial burglaries.
The recovered stolen property included several flat screen televisions, computer equipment, and electronic devices. In addition, deputies located and recovered clothing the burglars were wearing during the commission of the burglaries.
Based on the outstanding investigative efforts by the burglary suppression team, two male juvenile subjects were arrested and booked at Lancaster Station for burglary. Both juveniles are currently being housed at Barry J. Nidors Juvenile Detention Center in Sylmar.
Anyone with information about these burglaries is urged to contact the Burglary Suppression Team at Lancaster Station (661) 948-8466.
