TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Neighbors helped Sierra Vista police catch two people after a burglary incident.
Two Sierra Vista neighbors called police on Friday, Feb. 8 at around 11:00 a.m. after they witnessed two people wearing gloves and looking into windows of a residence in the 800 block of Escondido Drive, according to Tina Moore with the Sierra Vista Police Department.
A detective who was in the area at the time the neighbors called 9-1-1 saw the two people in the garage of the residence. One of the people fled on foot and the other fled in a maroon vehicle, according to Moore.
Police then set up a perimeter and used the clothing description provided by the neighbors and detective to search for the two individuals who fled, Moore said.
Moore tells KGUN9 that police finally caught up with 18-year-old Adrian Cisneros.
During the investigation, police learned more about the person Cisneros was with at the time of the burglary.
Officers later located the maroon vehicle at a home and finally made contact with the second person, a juvenile, Moore said.
Cisneros was charged with burglary. The juvenile was charged with burglary and trafficking in stolen property, according to Moore.
"Thanks to very alert neighbors, our officers have been able to apprehend four burglary suspects in the last week," said Cpl. Scott Borgstadt, police community resource and public information officer for the Sierra Vista Police Department. "Neighbors' alertness and actions, either as part of a Neighborhood Watch group or not, is important in keeping our community safe and helping officers to respond quickly and apprehend criminals."
