11 Arrested After Causing $5K in Damage During Home Burglary

A group of 11 people were arrested in San Marcos early Thursday morning for allegedly burglarizing a home, causing $5,000 worth of damage to the residence, officials said.

According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, a large group of both adults and minors broke into a vacant home in the 2700 block of Casa Linda Way just before 1 a.m.

The nearly one dozen suspects – which included males and females – were seen jumping a fence from the Apostolic Assembly of Faith Church on Smilax Road into a neighboring residential yard, deputies said.

Once they hopped the fence, the group forced their way into the house, causing major damage to the inside.

Deputies arrived on scene mid-burglary and arrested the suspects. Detectives from the San Marcos Gang Detail are investigating the incident. The names of the suspects were not released.
