San Bernardino Man Arrested for Stealing Tools From Garage of Occupied Home

SAN BERNARDINO – A San Bernardino homeowner called 911 after locating a male suspect inside his garage on Wednesday, August 1, 2018.

At around 4:00 a.m. a homeowner woke to his burglar alarm, following the onset of the blaring alarm, he heard a loud pop sound. When he looked outside to his garage he saw the male suspect who was loading a dolly with property from the garage. Deputies from the Central Station responded to the home in the 25400 block of 33rd Street and learned that the suspect left with several power tools and the dolly. The victim was able to provide a description of the suspect and his clothing. The suspect left westbound on 33rd Street toward Dogwood Street.

Deputies searched the area and located 21-year-old San Bernardino resident, Antonio Castillo, walking south on Dogwood Street. Castillo matched the suspect description and the victim’s property was located two houses north of Castillo on the street. While searching Castillo’s backpack, deputies located a crowbar, which was learned to be used to force the garage open. Other items belonging to the victim were also found inside the backpack. The victim positively identified Castillo as the burglary suspect.

Castillo was transported and booked into the Central Detention Center, PC 459- Burglary and active warrants.
