WANTED: Suspects Responsible for Vista Burglary

Up to $1,000 Reward

San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the Vista Sheriff's Station are asking for the public's help to identify and locate three unknown suspects wanted in connection with a burglary that occurred in the unincorporated area of Vista.

On April 25, 2018, at about 4:40 p.m., three Black males burglarized a house in the 1000 block of Sugarbush Drive  in unincorporated Vista.  The suspects arrived at the residence about 20 minutes after the homeowner left.  The suspects pulled into the driveway and Suspect #1 exited the vehicle and knocked on the front door.  When there was no answer,  he and Suspect #2 went to the backyard through a side gate.  They broke a rear sliding glass door and entered the residence. The suspects took a Barska safe, rifles and handguns in the burglary.  

The vehicle used in this burglary is a dark colored, possibly blue, 2018 Dodge Durango SXT with Bob Baker paper plates.  

These suspects may also be wanted in similar burglaries across the County of San Diego.  They are targeting geographically isolated, high-end homes and are likely driving newer model vehicles (with paper dealership plates) that have large storage capacities.
