Suspects arrested for theft and drug violations

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8) - San Diego sheriff's deputies arrested two people Wednesday as part of a larger investigation into burglaries and drug violations.

Robert Chip, 38, and Christina Whitaker, 30, were taken into custody at America's Best Value Inn in El Cajon. Both had felony warrants out for their arrests.

The sheriff's department is working with other law enforcement agencies to track down so-called "prolific offenders."

"Somebody who is involved in the criminal world in specific types of crimes related to narcotics or thefts or burglaries, and they've been arrested multiple times for that type of issue," Sgt. Chris May said.

Deputies are currently focusing their investigations on offenders in the East County.
