A Fontana Sheriff’s Station deputy arrested a Redlands man who allegedly committed a burglary in Bloomington and may have committed burglaries in other cities, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
On Aug. 20 at about 5:48 a.m., Deputy Adam Saragih responded to a possible commercial burglary in progress at the T-Mobile Store in the 11300 block of Cedar Avenue in Bloomington. When Saragih arrived, he located an abandoned vehicle, near the scene of the crime, with stolen property inside.
Saragih obtained assistance from other deputies, secured the business, secured the vehicle and began his investigation. He authorized a search warrant for the vehicle to recover stolen property and obtained suspect leads. He obtained video of the incident, which led to the identification of 33-year-old Zachary Marshall.
On Aug. 23, Saragih obtained assistance with his investigation from Detective Ryan Cook, from the Fontana Sheriff’s Station. Saragih authored a search warrant for an apartment located in the 100 block of New York Street in Redlands.
Saragih and other investigators conducted surveillance on the apartment and observed Marshall leave the residence and drive off in a black SUV. Investigators followed the black SUV and conducted a felony traffic stop in Beaumont.
Marshall was located inside the vehicle and detained without incident. The SUV allegedly contained heavy duty burglary tools and suspected additional stolen property. The vehicle was towed to the Fontana Sheriff’s Station, where Saragih authored a search warrant to recover evidence and property.
Investigators returned to Marshall’s residence in Redlands and served a search warrant, where they located additional evidence involved in the crime. Marshall was subsequently arrested and transported to West Valley Detention Center, where he was booked for the commercial burglary and felony vandalism.
Saragih spoke to other local law enforcement agencies, and Marshall is believed to be involved in additional commercial burglaries in their cities.
