Deputies arrest suspect in Fallbrook burglary spree

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A Fallbrook man was behind bars Tuesday for allegedly carrying out a spree of burglaries in the small North County town where he lives.

Deputies responding to a report of a suspicious-looking man outside a hardware store in the 600 block of South Main Avenue found Oscar Duran Ordonez, 26, inside the gated exterior of the business about 10:45 p.m. Monday, according to sheriff's officials.

"Ordonez matched the description of a suspect believed to have been involved in over 12 other commercial burglaries in the Fallbrook area," Sgt. Patrick Yates said.

Following questioning by detectives, Ordonez was booked into county jail in Vista on suspicion of 11 break-ins and an attempted burglary.

"In many of the burglaries, it was determined that nothing had been taken," the sergeant said. "However, in those burglaries where there was a loss, cash was stolen."

Ordonez had not been a suspect in the case prior to his arrest.

"He was new to Fallbrook and had no prior arrests," Yates said.

The suspect was being held on $300,000 bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
