3 suspects arrested in school burglary

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Three Riverside County men were jailed in San Diego Wednesday after allegedly getting caught at a Temecula-area Border Patrol freeway checkpoint with more than two dozen iPads and other electronics stolen during a break-in at Del Mar Heights Elementary School.

Thomas Earl Burleson, 20, Trevor J. Williams, 21, and Eyon Zimmerman, 19, pulled into the Interstate 15 inspection station in a northbound Lexus shortly after 2:30 a.m., according to police.

During a search of the vehicle, agents found the 29 high-end Apple tablet computers, along with a laptop and a projector, and determined that they belonged to the northwestern San Diego school, SDPD public-affairs Lt. Andra Brown said.

Williams, of Moreno Valley, and Burleson and Zimmerman, both of Hemet, were arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property.

After being notified of the arrests, San Diego police learned that the Del Mar-area school had been broken into and looted sometime earlier in the morning or during the previous evening, Brown said.
