Douglas Carl Wiley, 39-year-old local transient from Milpitas was seen climbing out of a window to a closed business on Saturday, July 3 at approximately 6:37 a.m. at 100 block South Main Street in Milpitas. The suspect was holding a cash register drawer in his hands. A witness began yelling at the suspect who then dropped the register and ran away from the scene. Another witness followed the suspect while police officers were en-route.
Officers arrived in the area and stopped Wiley, who matched the description. Several burglary tools and pieces of evidence, which were later linked to other burglaries, were also located. Wiley has been booked at the Santa Clara County Jail for two counts of burglary, possession of burglary tools and stolen property. In addition to the above offenses, he was recently arrested on June 12 for burglarizing a kiosk within the Great Mall. At present Wiley is in jail. However, should Wiley be released from custody, community members are highly encouraged to call the Police Department anytime if Wiley is observed within any areas acting suspiciously or without apparent lawful business.
