March 30, 2012 > Prowlers arrested
Submitted By Sgt. Raj Maharaj, Milpitas PD
On March 16, 2012, at approximately 1:17 p.m., the Milpitas Police Department received a 9-1-1 call from a citizen reporting seeing four teenaged males attempting to open the side gate to a residence in the 1500 block of Albany Court. The 9-1-1 caller provided physical and clothing descriptions for the four subjects, and indicated the subjects were associated to a green Chevrolet parked on South Gadsden Drive. The caller was worried that the four males were trying to burglarize a residence on Albany Court.
Milpitas Police Officers arrived on scene within several minutes of the 9-1-1 call and located the four subjects sitting in the green Chevrolet on South Gadsden Drive. The occupants had no lawful business at the residence on Albany Court and were detained for further investigation. A search of the green Chevrolet produced items that appear to be stolen; but the officers could not immediately identify the owners of the property, thus the items were seized for further investigation.
Based on the observations of the 9-1-1 caller and the investigation, all four of the subjects were arrested for prowling. The items seized for further investigation have been turned over to detectives to possibly identify the owners.
