Police officers in Fullerton successfully apprehended a man suspected of burglarizing vehicles in an east Fullerton neighborhood.
Officers were called to an apartment complex after receiving calls about a suspicious man going around knocking on sliding doors. Based on witness description, the officers were able to locate the man in a nearby parking lot.
The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Juan Ortiz of Placentia. Ortiz was arrested on burglary charges after police discovered a screwdriver and a stereo faceplate in his possession. The items matched the missing property that was reported stolen from the vehicle.
A few hours later witnesses reported seeing a second person in the complex. That suspect, identified as 27-year-old Jose Camarillo of La Habra, was arrested on burglary charges as well.
