Two teens, adult man arrested on suspicion of burglary in Paso Robles

Two teenagers and an adult man were arrested Wednesday night after allegedly trying to burglarize a Paso Robles home.

A woman called 911 at 9:55 p.m. to say she just found some people in her home in the 1500 block of Fairway Drive and she believed they were trying to rob her.

Officers arrived at the home within 60 seconds, but the suspects had already run away, according to a department news release.

Officers and a K9 started searching the area. Sgt. David Bouffard and his dog, Dar, found one of the suspects hiding in a Dumpster at a nearby golf course. The suspect was arrested without incident.

Two other suspects were caught running across a nearby golf course fairway by Officer Tod Rehner.

Two boys, ages 13 and 14, from Paso Robles were arrested in connection with the crime. Their names are not being released because they are juveniles.

Phillip Mena, 25, of Paso Robles was also arrested and booked into County Jail on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy, child endangerment, trespassing and probation violation.

Anyone with more information about the crime are asked to call the police department at 237-6464 or Crime Stoppers at 549-STOP or by texting SLOTIPS (274637).
