On April 20, 2014, the suspects pictured below knocked repeatedly on the front door of a home in Garden Grove. After receiving no response, they eventually climbed over the fence into the rear yard of the residence. They cut the screen near the handle of a French door on the rear of the house and then attempted to force their way into the door. When the residents, who had been hiding inside, heard the suspects working on the rear door, they started making noises inside and scared the suspects off. The residents then called the police and reported the incident.
Officers responded to the residence to investigate the attempted burglary. During the investigation, it was discovered that the residents had a very high-quality surveillance camera system installed at their residence. The attached photos and video are from that system.
The Garden Grove Police Department has exhausted all leads in their attempts to identify the three suspects pictured in the video and is now asking for the public’s help in identifying them. It is unlikely this was their first or last attempt at burglarizing a home in Garden Grove. If you recognize or have seen these individuals, please call Inv. Danielson at (714) 741-5815. If you see them out in your neighborhood, please call 911.
This type of activity is typical of residential burglary suspects. They will knock on the door to the residence several times in an attempt to determine the residence is unoccupied. If someone does answer the door, they commonly will act as though they are looking for a friend they thought lived at the residence. If you see this type of activity in your neighborhood, please call the police and let us contact the persons to determine if they are attempting to break into homes in your area.
