Trespassing report leads to forgery arrests
A trespassing report on Saturday led to the solving of a burglary that occurred the previous day in Laguna Beach, according to Callus.
Two people were arrested on trespassing and forgery charges after police were called to a vacant home in the 1200 block of Ocean Avenue on a report that a homeless woman was living there, Callus said. When police arrived at 9:49 p.m. Saturday, they allegedly discovered a woman and four men sleeping inside. A lock had been broken to gain entry to the home, but the alleged trespassers claimed that the home was authorized to be used as a homeless sleeping site when the Alternative Sleeping Location was full, Callus said. The homeowner was contacted and asked police to enforce criminal trespassing charges against the suspects.
