Burglars break into Poway business; one arrested

Posted: Updated:

POWAY (CNS) - Three burglars broke into a Poway business to steal computers early Wednesday and one of them was arrested, a sheriff's sergeant said.

Deputies responded to a burglary alarm at Apricorn Electronics at 12191 Kirkham Road about 2:30 a.m., according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Jason Vickery.

When deputies arrived, they saw three suspects flee to some heavy brush behind the business, Vickery said.

One of the suspects, identified as Julio Garcia, 27, was taken into custody a short time later, he said, adding that a perimeter was set up to search for the other two but more than an hour later, neither was found and the search was called off.

The suspects were in the process of loading a stolen van with computers from the business when deputies arrived, Vickery said. The van was reported stolen from Oceanside.
