LANCASTER – Two teenage brothers were arrested Thursday for allegedly breaking into an East Lancaster home, authorities said.
Shine Forman, 19, and his 16-year-old brother were arrested in connection with a home burglary that occurred around 11:30 a.m. on the 44700 block of Leslie Court, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Miguel Ruiz.
“When deputies arrived they saw two suspicious males near the location,” Ruiz stated. “The males then ran away from deputies and dropped a container of stolen coins, which was later discovered to have been stolen from the burglarized home.”
Ruiz said deputies contained the neighborhood to search for the suspects, and Lancaster’s Law Enforcement Aerial Platform System (L.E.A.P.S.) was deployed overhead.
Three nearby schools – Tierra Bonita Elementary, Cole Middle School and Columbia Elementary – were placed on lockdown as a precaution, according to Ruiz.
“Through accurate and efficient coordination, suspect Shine Forman and his juvenile 16-year-old brother were located and apprehended,” Ruiz stated.
Both were arrested on suspicion of burglary. Foreman, who also had a no bail warrant for a previous attempted robbery, was booked at the Lancaster Station jail. His 16-year-old brother was transported to Sylmar Juvenile Detention Facility for housing.
The homeowner told The AV Times that burglars had targeted her East Lancaster neighborhood in recent months.
“This time they took small items and a jar full of change,” the homeowner said. “In September when my house was burglarized, they took all my jewelry, including my wedding ring.”
“My neighbor’s house has also been burglarized within the last two weeks,” the homeowner added.

I bet says
Run their prints, I bet they have other history of unsolved BnE
These two knew the neighborhood very well. They have selected their victims’ residence base on what they have observed and from prior crimes. The 19 year old could also be on juvenile probation, adult probation or parole since this is most likely not his first time, The 16 years old may also be on juvenile probation bet you that their family has other criminal inclined family members in their family unit. Under AB109 the 19 year old can be sentenced to county jail which means he will serve no time in jail. Property crime
Very common thing to do for these people. Steal want everything for free and not work for things
Bet their momma is so proud.
Bet you she is. I have heard many times that some parents will actually encourage such behavior, being that they themselves are law-breakers. Sad, it truly is. And to bring your younger brother along for the crime is tragic.
What’s the big deal? Just another typical day in the good old Antelope Valley.
If it’s a big deal let them hit you up, You are the kind that allow this, how about instead of going oh well another day in the AV TAKE ACTION. Get cameras, Report suspicious activity.
Sorry, if it isn’t a big deal let them hit you up.
