Officers arrested three people today during a search of a Murrieta home where a suspected auto thief was staying, according to a police spokesman.
The arrests took place at about 5:30 a.m. when investigators tracked the suspect to a residence in the 39000 block of Agua Vista Street, Murrieta police Lt. Dan Weller said.
Roxanne Chavez, 22, also was suspected of using the stolen vehicle to get away from a burglary Friday at the Best Buy store in the 25000 block of Madison Avenue, in which a Playstation and other items were taken, Weller said.
Chavez was booked on suspicion of auto theft, theft and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Weller.
Also arrested were Escondido residents Elizabeth Hunt, 21, and Carlos Enrique Aguilera, 30, who were staying with Chavez.
The investigation revealed that Hunt was on probation for a narcotic-related offense out of San Diego County, with “search conditions” allowing
officers to conduct a search. She was found in possession of a controlled substance and police also found the Playstation believed stolen from the Best Buy, Weller said.
Hunt was booked on suspicion of theft and drug charges, while Aguilera was arrested on a no-bail felony warrant for domestic violence, according to Weller.
