Four people were arrested in connection to series of burglaries in Mira Mesa, Sabre Springs and Scripps Ranch over the last two months. Keith Lashaun Thomas, 19, Antonio Kresic, 21, and two juvenile suspects were arrested by San Diego police detectives.
The two juvenile suspects were booked into Juvenile Hall while Kresic and Thomas were booked into San Diego County Jail on multiple counts of residential burglary.
The first round of burglaries were reported on September 27 and continued for two weeks, detectives said. Nine properties in Scripps Ranch during that time.
Between October 3 and October 7, detectives worked with community members to develop several leads. It resulted in stolen property being recovered and four individuals being taken into custody.
"We have a very tight community, everyone knows each other says hello, there was discussion and concern with people warning one another, this puts everyone at ease again that these guys are taken care of... the neighborhood is safe again," said Frank Trovato who lives on Ashlock Way, a street in Scripps Ranch where at least three homes were burglarized.
Victims should stop by SDPD Northeastern Division, 13396 Salmon River Road on Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to identify their property. Victims need to bring personal ID and any paperwork that could assist with identification of their property.
