Two teens arrested in connection with 3 home burglaries in Vista

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - An 18-year-old man and a 14-year-old boy were jailed in connection with three home burglaries in a gated community in Vista, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said Saturday.

The burglaries happened over a three-week period in September, all within the gated community of Moncado Springs, and an investigation revealed the same two suspects were responsible for all three, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department reported.

The pair gained entry to the homes through unlocked windows or doors and each of the burglaries happened on a weekday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. while the residents were not home, the Sheriff's Department said.

One of the homeowners had a motion-activated surveillance camera which captured an image of a suspect, who was armed with a large kitchen or butcher knife, inside the home, and a flyer containing that image was distributed to other residents of the community, the Sheriff's Department said.

Taylor Beil Brylla, 18, and a 14-year-old boy, whose name was not released because of his age, were arrested Friday. A homeowner had spotted the pair about 2 p.m., as they appeared to be casing another home and called 911, a sheriff's department report said.

The homeowner confronted the pair and detained them, but they ran from the scene when deputies arrived and the suspects were later located in a search of a nearby mobile home park.

According to the Sheriff's Department, Brylla admitted his role in the burglaries and admitted to arming himself with a knife, and the 14-year-old admitted to involvement in one burglary. A search of their homes turned up two stolen watches and a video game console.

Brylla was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on charges of residential burglary, commercial burglary and resisting or delaying a peace officer. He is scheduled to appear in court 1:30 p.m. Oct. 3. The minor was booked into juvenile hall on suspicion of residential burglary and resisting or delaying a peace officer.
