Paso Robles juveniles burglarize skate shop
December 9, 2014
Three juveniles allegedly burglarized a skate shop in Paso Robles Sunday night. Atascadero police caught the suspects less than two hours later.
Paso Robles police received a report of the burglary at Alliance Board Shop in the 1200 block of Park Street at approximately 10:56 p.m. Officers arrived within one minute and searched the building with a canine, but the suspects had escaped.
Surveillance video showed three males breaking into the business by smashing the glass front door. While inside, they stole several skateboards and items of clothing valued at more than $1,400.
The burglars concealed their identity by wearing hooded sweatshirts and covering their faces with clothing. Still Paso Robles police notified other law enforcement in the area about the thieves.
Around 12:30 a.m. on Monday, Atascadero police notified the Paso Robles department that a car stopped for a vehicle code violation appeared to contain property stolen during the burglary. Paso Robles and Atascadero officers jointly determined that the three juveniles in the car matched the suspects from the surveillance footage.
Officers arrested two 15-year-olds and one 16-year-old from Paso Robles.
Their identities are not being released because they are juveniles.
Police booked the suspects in San Luis Obispo County Juvenile Services Center on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools and criminal conspiracy.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
