A suspect was arrested on March 2 for the Feb. 28 burglary of the Local Boys Surf & Skate shop at 503 L St in Crescent City.
According to Crescent City Police Chief Richard Griffin, Eric Carrizales, 24, was taken into custody in the 600 block of Pacific Avenue. Carrizales was spotted by a member of the Del Norte County Probation Department who witnessed him breaking into a vehicle.
Upon arrival, CCPD officers located Carrizales and engaged in a short foot pursuit that was concluded due to the teamwork of responding deputies of the Del Norte County Sheriff's Office.
Carrizales was booked into the Del Norte County Jail and charged with suspicion of petty theft, obstructing/resisting an officer, tampering with a vehicle, burglary, receiving known stolen property (less than $400) and vandalism. No bail was granted.
“Excellent teamwork between multiple agencies to get the suspect in custody,” Griffin wrote on the CCPD Facebook page. “The initial burglary is still under investigation and the case will be forwarded this week to the Del Norte County district attorney for review.”
