By Claire Harlin

A suspect was arrested in Escondido on Jan. 16 in conjunction with the recent burglary of two city-marked trucks and thousands of dollars in equipment from a City of Del Mar public works yard, Encinitas sheriff detective Mike Casey said.

Casey said the  incident took place between the evening of Jan. 9 and 5:55 a.m. on Jan. 10, when city employees arrived to find the front gate of the public works yard, located at 2240 Jimmy Durante. He said the lock had been broken off, and the loss totaled about $83,000.

Escondido police, who have not returned phone calls, are handling the investigation, Casey said. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
