Police arrest two suspects in Carlsbad burglary series

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CNS) - A pair of men suspected in a series of thefts from front porches, residences and vehicles throughout Carlsbad were behind bars Thursday.

Police said there could be as many as 19 cases in the series that spanned the first three months of the year.

Two suspects, 28-year-old James Dorman and parolee Victor Alaniz, 34, were arrested Tuesday after a resident called police just before noon to report suspicious activity at a neighbor's vacant house on Calle San Blas, according to Carlsbad police spokeswoman Jodee Sasway. The two suspects allegedly rang the bell then proceeded through the yard's side gate and entered the residence from the back, she said.

Officers arrived and arrested the two men, Sasway said.

Police also received a previous report that the same two men were allegedly taking property from the bed of a truck parked at a hotel on Grand Avenue, Sasway said.

Detectives on Jan. 11 arrested nine suspects though to be involved with the series at Dorman's residence on Phillips Way in Vista, Sasway said.

Oceanside police on Monday arrested Saul Tellez, 41, on suspicion of similar crimes, Sasway said.
