LANCASTER – Two teenagers on probation were arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly trying to burglarize an East Lancaster home, authorities said.
Dreazon Dumas and Dyjahn Stewart, both 18-year-old Lancaster residents, were arrested in connection with a crime that happened around 9:20 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31, at a home in the 43600 Block of San Francisco Avenue, according to Deputy Miguel Ruiz of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“Lancaster Station dispatch received a call of two black males who were seen jumping over a wall and into the backyard of an unoccupied home,” Ruiz stated in a news release. “When deputies arrived to the home, the two suspects ran from the location.”
More deputies responded and contained the neighborhood to search for the suspects, Ruiz said, and nearby Eastside High School was placed on lockdown “out of caution for the safety of students and staff.”
Dumas and Stewart were detained less than an hour later near 30th Street East and Avenue K in Lancaster, according to Ruiz.
Both were arrested on suspicion of burglary and each booked at the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
“Both were recently placed on probation and both have a criminal history of burglary,” Ruiz stated in the news release.
