Man arrested in Orange County, California, car burglaries

Breaking and entering into cars is a relatively common crime that rarely nets a suspect, and most people who have items stolen from their cars do not see their property again. However, police in Garden Grove believe they may have good news for hundreds of victims of car theft in Los Alamitos and neighboring burgs over the last few years after they discovered a "wall-to-wall" treasure trove of stolen goods found in a suspect's home. The police noticed a common pattern in auto burglary cases beginning two years ago, when a white Range Rover was reported in the area around the time of each theft. Finally, a witness was able to note the license number of the vehicle, and a visit to the home of the car's owner revealed hundreds of stolen items, including laptops, cell phones, a handgun, more than 100 California licenses and almost $10,000 in cash along with other items.

One of the perpetrators pointed the gun at him and told him to lay on the ground. The two ransacked the man's garage and allegedly fired a shot through the wall that entered the bedroom where the suspect's wife lay sleeping. The suspects fled with several items, including the man's cell phone.
