3 arrests in string of Yorba Linda burglaries
YORBA LINDA, Calif. (KABC) -- Three men were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of burglarizing homes in Yorba Linda.
Howard Arca, 36; Don Nguyen, 32; and Vu Doan, 21, were arrested 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. Deputies searched the cars and found crowbars, gloves and screwdrivers, tools used in a string of burglaries in the area over the previous several months. The three men were then arrested.
The three are believed to be part of a larger burglary ring responsible for more than 100 area burglaries that began in October, according to the sheriff's department.
