Recycle theft suspects arrested
Submitted By Sgt. K. Corvin, Milpitas PD
On Saturday, May 26, 2012, Milpitas Police Department officers conducted a security check at a vacant business in the 1300 (Block) of California Cr. and located two suspected burglars who were in the process of stealing recyclable metals from inside the building.
Milpitas Police Officers were checking on the security of the business and located an unsecured door. The officers entered the building and heard loud noises from another area of the building. Additional officers responded to the area and took positions around the building to watch for fleeing suspects. Officers detained Fremont resident Scott M. McCann, and Livermore resident Suzanne M. Rose as they walked from the business.
Officers checked the interior of the business and identified areas of extensive damage where recyclable metals had been removed from the walls, ceiling, and electrical boxes. Officers also located tools that were believed to have been used in the theft of the metals. Officers located a vehicle registered to McCann at a nearby building.
