Paso Robles police arrested three men and a juvenile this week for a Feb. 2 nighttime burglary of Campos Ceramics that cost the business about $4,000 in damage and stolen property.
At about 11:55 p.m. Monday, officers responded to a burglary alarm at the business on the 700 block of 24th Street. When they arrived, they found a front glass window shattered as well as several glass display cabinets smashed, according to a department news release.
Hours later, officers located Phillip Hohn Tucker, 18, who allegedly matched the description of a suspect in the business’ security cameras, on the 1200 block of Spring Street. Tucker was allegedly found to have stolen property on him and was arrested.
Three more suspects were identified during the day. Officers allegedly found more stolen property while contacting Joel Samuel Skinner, 18, and Matthew James Esparza, 19, who were both arrested. All three men are residents of Paso Robles.
