Defendants charged in connection with iPad, Laptop thefts from Del Mar Heights School

San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis announced recently that Eyon Zimmerman, 19; Trevor Williams, 21; and Thomas Burleson, 21 were charged with multiple felony counts, including burglary, receiving stolen property, and allegations of felonies committed for the benefit of a criminal street gang.

Williams and Burleson are documented gang members in Riverside County.  The defendants were arraigned Feb. 1 in San Diego Superior Court and pleaded not guilty.  If convicted of all the charges Zimmerman faces 13 years, Williams faces nine years, Burleson faces seven years in state prison.

Border Patrol Agents and San Diego Police Department Officers arrested Zimmerman, Williams and Burleson at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement check point near Temecula on Jan. 30 shortly after a burglary at Del Mar Heights Elementary School.  Twenty-nine stolen iPads were recovered from the suspects’ vehicle during the stop.

“Our investigation is ongoing and more arrests in this case are possible,” Dumanis said.  “I want to give credit to our C.A.T.C.H. Team and all of the law enforcement agencies who are working cooperatively on these burglaries and their connections to gang activity in Southern California.”

Between mid-November 2012 and Jan. 29, 2013, law enforcement has reported a series of 11 burglaries that have occurred at various schools located in San Diego County.  In total, thieves have stolen 115 Apple laptops and 123 iPads.  In an ongoing joint investigation with the Computer And Technology Crimes High Tech Response Team (CATCH), the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Carlsbad Police Department, members of the Riverside County gang, Dorner Blocc Crips have been identified as suspects in the burglary series.                 — District Attorney news release
