SLO man arrested for burglarizing homes in Arroyo Grande

Jose Beas Ramirez

Surveillance videos taken from cameras at neighbor’s homes helped Arroyo Grande police identify and arrest a 29-year-old San Luis Obispo man for an alleged burglary, police said.

Shortly before 11 a.m. on Friday, a caller reported a burglary at a home on the 1000 block of Magnolia Drive. Investigators then discovered neighbors’ surveillance cameras had captured a man prowling through the neighborhood and looking though mailboxes earlier that morning.

By distributing the video to other officers, investigators were able to identify the suspect as Jose Beas Ramirez. Officers conducted a probation search and discovered items from not only the Magnolia Drive burglary, but also from previous burglaries and thefts.

Officers arrested Ramirez and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of burglary, theft of personal property, being under the influence, and two failures to appear. He remains in jail with his bail set at $10,000.


Don’t worry folks, under realignment these are nonviolent, nonsexual, ergo non serious crimes, so he’ll be out real soon to rob and pillage again. Obviously probation didn’t work for this scumbag. Doesn’t anyone ever do any time for crimes like this – or for any crimes, for that matter?


Residential burglary, in California, or 1st Degree Burglary (459 PC), is considered a strikable offense and is considered “violent” because of the possibility of violence. What CCN failed to report is when he was apprehended a probation search was conducted where the stolen items were found, which implies he was on felony formal probation which in turn implies he has a suspended prison sentence hanging over his head.

I doubt very much if you’ll be seeing Mr. Ramirez anytime soon on your streets.


You’re repetitive harping gets old.
