BARSTOW – The 44-year-old Barstow man who was arrested for attempting to burglarize the Q-Mart Store in Barstow was released from jail after a no contest plea and sentencing on Monday.
Jason Jaramillo was arrested after setting off an audible burglar alarm while attempting to pry open a rooftop hatch at the Q-Mart at 600 West Main Street in Barstow. Police were dispatched to the area just before 2:55 a.m. on Monday, April 9, 2018, to investigate the activation of the audible alarm. When they arrived they saw Jaramillo attempting to flee the location. Jaramillo was taken into custody and authorities later found that pry marks found on the rooftop hatch were consistent with the pry bar found in his possession. In addition, authorities determined that Jaramillo never was able to gain access to the inside of the store due to the alarm sound leading him to climb off of the roof in an attempt to flee.
In court on Monday, April 16, 2018, pursuant to a plea bargain, Jaramillo pleaded no contest to a single count of misdemeanor Attempted Burglary. He was sentenced to 16 days in jail and was released at around 4:50 p.m. on Monday for the 8 days of time served. Jaramillo will also be on Summary probation for a period of three years, was ordered to stay away from the Barstow Q-Mart Store, and will be responsible to pay approximately $950 in court fees.
