Residential burglary suspect arrested
Submitted By Sgt. Kevin Corvin, Milpitas PD
On July 10, 2012 at approximately 7:11 p.m., Milpitas Police Department officers responded to a reported residential burglary in the 60 (B) of Woodland Court. A resident called Milpitas Police Department to report a suspicious subject who was standing in the gated front courtyard of the residence. While the resident was on the phone with police dispatchers, the subject, identified as 38-year-old Milpitas resident Jason Anthony Gibbons, forced his way into the attached garage via the side garage screen door. The resident saw Gibbons walk into the garage and yelled. Gibbons fled the garage onto Woodland Court.
At approximately 7:12 p.m., another resident in the 100 (B) of Woodland Way called Milpitas Police to report a subject with a description similar to that of the subject on Woodland Court had broken the gate to the backyard and had attempted to open a screen door at the rear of the home. The subject fled from the residence when he was unable to open the screen door. Both residents provided similar physical and clothing descriptions of the subject.
Milpitas Police Department officers quickly responded to the area and began a search for the subject. During a thorough neighborhood search, officers located Gibbons as he hid in bushes in the greenbelt area near the two residences. The physical and clothing descriptions provided by the residents matched that of Gibbons. Gibbons appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance.
Gibbons was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on the charges of burglary, attempted burglary, under the influence of a controlled substance, and a parole hold.
