SIERRA VISTA, AZ - Alert neighbors are credited with the arrest of two burglary suspects.
It happened Friday, February 8 just before 11:00am in the 800 block of Escondido Drive in Sierra Vista.
The neighbors saw two guys wearing gloves peering into the windows of a home. They immediately called police.
A detective with the Sierra Vista Police Department was nearby and responded. He saw the two suspects in the home's garage and when they spotted him, they bolted. One ran off on foot; the other took off in a maroon vehicle.
Neighbors gave the detective a good description of the clothing of the suspect on foot.
Police set up a perimeter and based on that clothing description, 18-year-old Adrian Cisneros was apprehended, not far from the burglary.
Through the course of the investigation, the vehicle and second suspect were identified.
Officers found the vehicle at a Sierra Vista home, and that's where they took their second suspect into custody.
He is a 17-year-old, taken to the Cochise County Juvenile Detention Center and charged with Burglary and Trafficking in Stolen Property.
Cisneros was booked into the Cochise County Jail, charged with Burglary.
"Thanks to very alert neighbors, our officers have been able to apprehend four burglary suspects in the last week," said Corporal Scott Borgstadt, police community resource/public information officer.
"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."
