Three Arrested in Yorba Linda Burglaries

Over 100 burglaries have taken place in Yorba Linda since October 2012, and police believe they finally have the thieves. Thieves broke into 35 homes last month alone, stealing mainly jewelry and electronics. Authorities say most of the burglaries happened during the say between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Due to the increased number of burglaries, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department had taken over law-enforcement duties in Yorba Linda, leading to an increase in patrols.  On Friday, authorities arrested Howard Arca, 36; Don Nguyen, 32; and Vu Doan, 21, in the East Lake Village area of Yorba Linda.

Neighborhood residents reported suspicious activity, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. Residents said three men were knocking on doors in the neighborhood. If residents answered, the men asked for someone who did not live at the residence.

Sheriff’s deputies located the three men sitting in two cars in the area. Their stories were found to be inconsistent and after searching the cars, deputies found crowbars, gloves and screwdrivers. The three men are believed to be part of a larger burglary ring responsible for more than 100 area burglaries.
