Around 4:45am on March 8, 2021, a resident reported witnessing three subjects breaking into a vehicle in San Tan Valley. 

When Pinal County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) Deputies attempted to stop the suspect vehicle, the suspects sped off.  The pursuit ended after the driver crashed into a fence, and all three suspects bailed out of the vehicle.

Deputies apprehended and arrested 24-year-old Julian Ochoa, 19-year-old Francisco Chamorro Fernandez, and 21-year-old Angela Reveles. These suspects are connected to at least 10 vehicle burglaries reported in the area that night.

The suspects' vehicle was discovered to be stolen. During a search, deputies found additional stolen property including a laptop, a purse, a handgun, and mail.

Vehicle burglaries have been an ongoing issue, especially in the San Tan Valley area. Many of these thefts can be prevented if you remember to keep your vehicles locked, and valuables hidden from sight.
