A commercial burglary occurred overnight at the Sinodino Restaurant were copper pipes were stolen. Later in the shift Officers contacted Ellis Vietor, a transient, near the recycling center on Redekker Place. Vietor was in possession of the stolen pipes. He was arrested for burglary of the restaurant and booked at Santa Rita Jail.

A family in the 37400 block of Ash Street left their home for the evening. An item was left behind and the family returned to retrieve the article (less than ten minutes after they left). The family found two subjects inside the home ransacking and placing property in pillow cases. No property was stolen. Police officers responded at 6:30 p.m., set up a perimeter around the neighborhood and arrested a 15 year-old male Newark resident for the burglary. The other suspect was not captured. It was learned that there were two lookouts outside the residence while two others entered the home via an unlocked rear window. The three outstanding suspects were described as Hispanic Males age 15-18 wearing dark clothing. Investigation is ongoing to learn the identity of the other suspects.

NOTE: it is believed the suspects watched the home and saw the family leave prior to breaking in. Please be vigilant around your neighborhood and call the Newark Police Department to report any suspicious activity.
