Teen and 21-year-old Arrested in Connection with Burglary
The suspects are accused of breaking into a home near their residence.
Loma Linda/Grand Terrace Police arrested two suspected robbers Thursday shortly after the break-in was reported at a Grand Terrace home.
About 10:38 pm, Deputy Daniel Hanke was dispatched to a residential burglary in progress at a home in the 22000 block of Newport Avenue. Officials said a resident confronted the two men who then fled the area.
Hanke and Deputy Jeremiah Cornett arrived on scene within minutes of receiving the call, officials said. Using information gathered at the scene and from witness, the deputies found their suspect, 21-year-old Jesse Hernandez and a 15-year-old Hispanic boy at a neighboring mobile home park. Both live in the park and were arrested at their homes, officials said.
Hernandez was also on felony probation and booked into Central Detention Center for violation of probation and on suspicion of residential burglary. The 15-year-old was released to his parent or guardian pending a court appearance for residential burglary, officials said.
