BARSTOW – A Barstow man and two Barstow teens were arrested for burglarizing a home on Tuesday afternoon. At around 2:45 p.m. a neighbor called authorities to report that her neighbor was at work and she saw three black males forcibly enter the home. Detectives responded to the 1200 block of Navajo Street and arrived at around 2:49 p.m. As they approached the home, Dominique Rivers, 23, exited the front door carrying two rifle cases.
The detectives raised their service weapons and ordered Rivers to the ground, he complied and was taken into custody. While officers were setting up a perimeter around the home they saw two black males fleeing from the back of the home. The two teens ran south and jumped over several fences until they were ultimately located in the backyard of a home in the 1200 block of Elizabeth Street where they were taken into custody.
As part of the investigation, officers searched the home and found additional evidence indicating that the home had been burglarized. The victim confirmed that no one had permission to enter his home. The three suspects, River and a 15 and 16-year-old male were transported to the Barstow Police Department for questioning. The search for suspects was expanded to adjacent streets. A Drone was used to check the area and no additional suspects were located. With the help of the victim, all of the property stolen was accounted for.
Rivers was booked into the High Desert Detention Center and the two teens were booked into the San Bernardino County Juvenile Hall in Apple Valley for burglary.
