BURGLARY ARRESTS

On Sunday, September 9, 2012 at approximately 4:14am, a Fountain Valley Police officer observed a white 1995 Nissan Maxima exiting a commercial complex in the area of Harbor Blvd and Heil Ave. The driver was operating the vehicle with no lights on and began traveling a high rate of speed after turning northbound onto Harbor Blvd. The commercial complex has no open businesses at that time of the morning and has experienced burglaries in the recent past. The officer stopped the vehicle for unsafe speed, no headlamps during darkness, and to investigate why the subjects were driving in the closed commercial complex. Upon contacting the three occupants, the officer observed computers, computer monitors, and a large screen television. Additional officers responded to the commercial complex and discovered a smashed window and property missing from one of the businesses. Investigation revealed the suspects had forced entry to a closed business and had stolen property from within. The suspects; Alex Alejandre, 18 years of Garden Grove, Francisco Garcia, 19 years of Santa Ana, and Jesus Gomez, 19 years of Fullerton were all arrested for commercial burglary, possession of stolen property, and conspiracy to commit a crime. Each of the suspects was booked into the Orange County Jail.
