Two people were arrested outside a Temecula, CA church on Sunday, October 4, 2009, on suspicion of vehicle theft and other charges according to authorities. An officer was patrolling the area of Hope Lutheran Church in Temecula because there had been several recent reports of burglaries in church parking lots in the area during worship services.
At about 9:00am an officer spotted a vehicle matching the description of the vehicle used in recent parking lot burglaries and the officer quickly discovered that the vehicle had been reported stolen.
The driver and his passenger were both found to be on probation for theft related crimes and the car their vehicle was found to contain numerous suspected stolen items including several purses, cell phones, digital cameras, gift cards, iPods, jewelry, a laptop computer and a GPS device. They also found burglary tools.
The two suspects are now likely hoping that the court shows mercy on them if in fact they are legally guilty of the crimes for which they were arrested. While there may be forgiveness in the eyes of God, these two should really be praying for an experienced Riverside County theft defense attorney to help them convince the court and district attorney’s office that they truly are deserving of mercy.
An experienced theft defense attorney who knows the court where your case is pending in will be in the best position to negotiate a favorable outcome in your case.
