Temecula man arrested in series of San Diego home burglaries

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A young man suspected of burglarizing the homes of retirement-age residents of Chula Vista, Rancho Bernardo and Santee was arrested Wednesday in the Riverside area.

Deputies took 20-year-old Joshua David Nicholes into custody after serving a search warrant on Margarita Road in Temecula about 7 a.m., San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Tom Poulin said.

One of the home-invasion crimes Nicholes is suspected of committing occurred last November at a mobile home park in the 7400 block of Mission Gorge Road, according to Poulin. During that crime, Nicholes and an unidentified cohort allegedly talked their way into a residential trailer and stole about $8,000 worth of jewelry, the sergeant said.

Nicholes was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of burglary. He was being held on $50,000 bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Friday afternoon.
