A Sierra Vista Police Department detective was in the area and saw the two subjects in the garage of the residence. When the suspects saw the detective, one fled on foot and the other left in a maroon vehicle. The detective and the neighbors were able to provide a clothing description of the suspect that fled on foot. Sierra Vista Police Department officers were able to set up a perimeter and based on the clothing description caught and arrested Adrian Cisneros, 18 years old of Sierra Vista, not far from the burglary.
Through the course of the investigation the vehicle and the second suspect that left the area was identified. Officers located the vehicle at a Sierra Vista residence and made contact with the second suspect, a juvenile, who was also arrested.
Cisneros was charged with Burglary and booked into the Cochise County Jail. The juvenile was charged with Burglary and Trafficking in Stolen Property. The juvenile was detained at the Cochise County Juvenile Detention Center.
