LAGUNA BEACH – Three Riverside residents were arrested in Laguna Beach after a resident noticed a suspicious truck parked in his neighbor’s driveway and reported it to police early Friday morning. The report was made at around 6:30 a.m., Gwendulyn Ceballos-Jimenez, 21, Michael Murilloh, 31, and Allen Ykwang Lin, 29, allegedly broke into several vehicles on Nyes Place and subsequently broke into a home. As police were en route to the home, the three fled from the home in the truck at a high rate of speed.
The police located and gave chase to the vehicle, the driver pulled over to a stop and the three fled on foot, abandoning the stolen truck. They all ran up the street and fled in separate directions. Ceballos-Jimenez was caught hiding in bushes in front of a home shortly after. Murilloh was also found hiding in a different bush and Ykwang Lin was found hiding in a canyon area off Dunning Drive. “Since it’s not safe for us to traverse down a hill to look for suspects hiding in the bushes, we warned Ykwang Lin that a K-9 would be coming his way if he didn’t surrender,” Laguna Police officials said. “He didn’t surrender. We warned him again. Still, no surrender. We sent in the K-9 as promised. He surrendered and once the dog bite he received was treated by medics, he was arrested.”
All three were booked into the Orange County Jail for residential burglary and possession of stolen property. Four victims were identified and their belongings were returned to them.
