Police Make Burglary Arrests
On December 1st, Suisun City Police Department Officers arrested seven individuals on two separate cases. The arrests began just after 3 a.m. when officers were dispatched to the area of Klamath Dr. regarding a report of juveniles looking inside parked cars. The suspects ran once the officers arrived, but the officers were able to apprehend them. The investigation confirmed various acts of theft and vehicle tampering. Four 16-year-old boys were arrested. Two reside in Suisun City; the third resides in Vallejo; and the fourth resides in Fairfield.
At about 10 a.m. a resident in the 1100 block of Lawler Ranch was awakened by a subject ringing his doorbell. Before he could answer his door, the subject began kicking the door to gain entry. The resident yelled out and the subject fled. The resident captured a good description of the getaway vehicle and called the Suisun City Police Department.
Suisun City Police Department Officers located a vehicle on Hwy 12 that was similar to what the resident had reported. A stop was made and three suspects were detained. The investigation confirmed the burglary attempt. The investigation also confirmed that numerous residences in that area had previously been identified as potential target homes. John Alcutt, a 25-year-old resident of Richmond, was arrested on charges of burglary, conspiracy, and a violation of probation. Garland Callum Sr., a 39-year-old resident of Berkeley, was arrested on charges of burglary and conspiracy. Callum’s 17-year-old son, a resident of Fairfield, was also arrested on charges of burglary and conspiracy.
These acts of theft and burglary are a reminder of the increase in crime many cities experience during the holidays. To help deter these types of crimes, residents are always encouraged to immediately telephone the police if unknown or suspicious vehicles or people are observed. It is exceptionally helpful when citizens are able to safely provide detailed information to the Dispatch Center about the suspicious vehicles or persons observed, as illustrated by the Lawler Ranch incident above. Further deterrent is realized by knowing and talking with your neighbors, starting or joining a neighborhood watch program, and by using quality theft prevention devices.
Anyone with information about these crimes can telephone Suisun City Police Department at (707) 421-7373.
