3/15/2011 - CAR BURGLARY SUSPECTS CAUGHT IN THE ACT BY OFF-DUTY CHULA VISTA POLICE OFFICER
 

AN OFF-DUTY CHULA VISTA POLICE OFFICER WAS DRIVING HOME FROM HIS SHIFT JUST AFTER 2 A.M. SUNDAY MORNING AND OBSERVED A MALE PASSENGER IN A MINIVAN ACTING SUSPICIOUSLY BY EXITING THE VEHICLE AND COVERTLY RUNNING INTO A RESIDENTIAL PARKING LOT.

THE DRIVER OF THE MINIVAN THEN DROVE A SHORT DISTANCE AND STOPPED, APPARENTLY WAITING ON THE PASSENGER. THE OFFICER SURMISED THE SUSPECTS WERE CASING CARS WITH THE INTENT OF STEALING PROPERTY FROM WITHIN THE VEHICLES. THE OFFICER IMMEDIATELY CALLED POLICE DISPATCH FOR ASSISTANCE.

AS THE OFFICER CONTINUED TO OBSERVE, THE PASSENGER/SUSPECT BURGLARIZED A CAR. IN RESPONSE, AS APPROACHING POLICE BACK-UP WAS COMING FROM A DISTANCE, THE OFF-DUTY OFFICER DETAINED THE BURGLARY SUSPECT HIMSELF UNTIL MORE OFFICERS ARRIVED. HE THEN DIRECTED POLICE UNITS TO THE MINVAN WHERE THE 2ND SUSPECT WAS ARRESTED.

IN ADDITION TO THE BURGLARY WITNESSED BY THE OFF-DUTY OFFICER, THE SUSPECTS ALSO HAD PROPERTY FROM TWO ADDITIONAL VEHICLE BURGLARIES IN THEIR POSSESSION.

ARRESTED WERE 19-YEAR OLD MARCO MOSQUEDA AND 24-YEAR OLD IVAN MORALES. BOTH WERE BOOKED IN TO THE CHULA VISTA POLICE DEPARTMENT JAIL AND CHARGED WITH 459 PC (BURGLARY), 496 PC (POSSESSION OF STOLEN PROPERTY), AND 182 PC (CONSPIRACY TO COMMITT A CRIME).
