Armed Adelanto Vehicle Burglar Arrested After Escalating Crime Spree

ADELANTO – The suspect responsible for several vehicle burglaries on a couple of normally quiet South Adelanto streets on Saturday, May 20, 2017, has been arrested.

The suspect, later identified as 24-year-old Adelanto resident, Tyshon Aaron Williams was arrested following an apparently escalating crime spree approximately a half hour following the vehicle burglaries, where he stole mainly paperwork, medication, and other low-value items.

Williams, who was out on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) was arrested on Sunday, May 21, 2017, after threatening a resident in the 11600 block of Autumn Street in the City of Adelanto approximately ¾ miles south of the vehicle burglaries. The victim had just got home from work. He walked up to his home and saw Williams with a firearm in his right hand. Williams pointed the gun at the male victim and threatened to shoot him. After that initial threat, he continued with additional threats before leaving the location. The victim did not know the suspect. 

When deputies from the Victor Valley station arrived, Williams was seen on Star Street where fled through nearby yards. Deputies set up a perimeter in order to search for the suspect and while searching on came upon the shotgun tossed in a nearby backyard.

During an extensive search of the surrounding area, the suspect, identified as Tyshon Williams, was found lying in the back seat of a vehicle parked along the curb on Star Street. Eventually, a deputy located Williams hiding in the backseat of a vehicle parked on Star Street. Williams claimed that the shotgun was not his and was not ever in his possession. Surveillance footage and other evidence linking Williams to the shotgun and the vehicle burglaries was collected by deputies.

Williams was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for Assault with a firearm on a person, felon in possession of a firearm, terrorist threats, brandishing a weapon, and violation of felony parole. Additional misdemeanor vehicle burglary charges, according to a Victor Valley Station deputy will likely be added to his list of charges. Williams, who is being held without bail is expected to appear at the Victorville Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon for an arraignment hearing.
