CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A 45-year-old man was arrested early Tuesday on suspicion of breaking into a vacant Chula Vista house and stealing appliances, police said.
A Good Samaritan called police at 12:53 a.m. and reported seeing a lone man loading appliances into a gray Chevrolet pickup truck from a house in the 100 block of Naples Street, according to Chula Vista police.
A short time later, a patrol officer spotted a truck matching the caller's description in the 900 block of Nacion Avenue and detained the driver, Chula Vista police spokesman Bernard Gonzales said.
The owner of the home was called and confirmed a washer, dryer, stove and other property in the truck's bed came from the house, Gonzales said.
The driver, identified as Adolfo Maldonado, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and taken to county jail, he said, adding that Maldonado was on probation for a residential burglary committed in 2009.
