At about 6:20 a.m. on Wednesday, a burglary was in progress at the Miner’s Ace Hardware store in the 1000 block of Los Osos Valley Road, according to officials. A person at a neighboring business reported hearing glass breaking and then seeing someone wearing a black ski mask and black clothing enter the hardware store. The suspect later exited the store and left the area in a Ford SUV, the witness said.

Deputies managed to locate the vehicle, which was parked in the lot of a restaurant in the 900 block of Los Osos Valley Road. As deputies pulled up to the vehicle, they noticed the driver was wearing a ski mask.

The deputies arrested the suspect, 18-year-old Calvin Paul Anthony Latorella of Los Osos without incident.

While investigating the crime, deputies determined Latorella had committed additional burglaries at Kum Sushi in the 2000 block of 10th Street and Round Table Pizza in the 1000 block of Los Osos Valley Road. Latorella also attempted to burglarize the Sea Pines Golf Shop in the 1900 block of Solano Street, according to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators believe the first two burglaries and the attempted burglary occurred during the early morning hours of Tuesday and Wednesday.

Over the course of the investigation, detectives identified a second suspect who allegedly worked with Latorella in the Kuma Sushi burglary and the Sea Pines Golf Shop attempted burglary. Sheriff’s officials identified the second suspect as 18-year-old Kai Keoni Ribeira, of Paso Robles.

Deputies arrested Latorella on three counts of burglary and one count of attempted burglary, as well as charges of auto theft and possession of a deadly weapon. Sheriff’s officials say the deadly weapon was a lead sap.

Ribeira was arrested on Thursday on charges of burglary and attempted burglary. Deputies booked both Latorella and Ribeira into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.

As of Saturday morning, Latorella remains in custody with his bail set at $130,000. Ribeira remains in custody with his bail set at $32,000.

Enjoy your new accommodations, tweakers.

Have you ever thought that maybe they weren’t “tweakers”, referring to people that smoke meth. Also, maybe consider that these two 18 year olds have been through more shit in those 18 years than you have in your whole lifetime? maybe they finally just had a snapping point.. Instead of doing something horrific, they did something to try to improve their quality of life by atleast gaining a little money. These were insured company’s. They lost nothing but time and a bit of inconvenience. Sure they obviously didn’t deserve it.. but these two kids didn’t deserved they way they grew up either.. they didn’t deserve they horrible mental illnesses like severe anxiety and depression they were given. There’s so much more to this that your close minded ass could never understand. P.S Lick my taint, asshole.

Such bright futures….good job mom and dad….

Excuse me, how much do you make hourly? How much do you make weekly? How much do you make in a year? I’m sure you have the brightest of futures bud… I’d be willing to bet money that these two young men are much smarter than you in terms of understanding life. Have you ever spoken to either of them? I know one of them probably makes a hell of a lot more money than you do, yearly. and I know they both aspire to do better. You’re right about “mom and dad” obviously they didn’t do a very good job. That’s if they were even there at all.. You’re an arrogant scumbag. No better than two troubled teens who made a mistake life drove them close to doing.

All for naught. The courts will just let them go instead of making them spend a couple of years with Bubba.
