Detectives Say Stolen Computer Led Them To Serial Burglars In Ventura County


A couple has apparently taken the idea of togetherness a little too far, with detectives saying the husband and wife teamed up for a series of commercial burglaries in Ventura County.

Investigators say Edward and Sarah Cruz of San Diego burglarized a Thousand Oaks clothing store, and an eyeglass store in January.

Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say they struck again in April, stealing items from a Thousand Oaks spa.  But, they say the third burglary helped them find the couple.  A computer was among the items stolen.

They were able to track down the computer, which led them to the couple.  They were arrested while they were staying at a San Diego County resort. 

Detectives got a warrant for their home, and say they found a number of items stolen during the Thousand Oaks burglaries.
