On Tuesday, April 27 at approximately 9:46 p.m., Officer Lap La was patrolling near 900(B) Cadillac Court and located an adult and three juveniles hiding behind a parked vehicle. As the officer exited his vehicle the 14 year-old suspect attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended. He was later identified as a runaway from the City of San Jose.
As Officer La investigated further, he discovered a Molotov cocktail on the ground near the suspects. All four suspects were turned over to the Milpitas Fire Department's Arson Investigator. The investigation revealed a second Molotov cocktail on Glenmoor Circle.
Based on the investigation, the 18 year-old male, Kyle Schielke, was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for attempted arson, possession of an incendiary device, and conspiracy. The three juveniles were booked for the same charges at the Santa Clara County Juvenile Hall.
