Four arrested in connection to home invasion

TUCSON - Tucson Police arrest four suspects they say were connected to a home invasion Wednesday.

This happened at an apartment in the 6200 block of South Campbell Avenue.

Police tell News 4 a female victim told them two unknown men, one armed with a handgun, had entered her residence without permission. The men bound her, ransacked the home, and took various items before leaving in an unknown direction.

The woman was not hurt.

The responding officers followed some leads that led them to a motel in the area of the 800 block of East Benson Highway.

The officers saw two men in the parking lot of the motel and quickly discovered that one of them had victim's property in his possession. Further investigation led the officers to a specific room at the motel where two additional adult males were detained and additional property stolen from the victim was seen in plain sight.

A search warrant was obtained for the suspects' motel room along with a blue Mercury station wagon that was located on the property and associated to the suspects. Nearly all the property stolen from the victim was located in the room along with various firearms, narcotics, and narcotics paraphernalia.

Detectives determined that Alec Diaz-DeLeon (22-years old) was the armed individual who entered the victim's residence. Dillon Weber (21-years old) was the second individual, who entered the victim's residence and bound her. Andrew Valenzuela (26-years old) drove the
two others to the victim location with knowledge that they were going to commit a robbery or burglary. Adrian Bradford (29-years old) accepted some of the victim's property as payment for a debt, knowing that it had just been taken in a residential robbery.

Diaz-DeLeon and Weber were each arrested for 1 count of Armed Robbery, 1 count of Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery, 1 count of Aggravated Robbery, and 1 count of Kidnapping, all felony offenses.
