Ventura County – Teen burglars recently ran up on the reality of law enforcement. Some career choices are made early. Based upon their September 12th arrest on suspicion of multiple vehicle and retail store burglaries, 18-year-old Thousand Oaks residents Cody Marshak and Kailey Brown have made the wrong choice.
It was in the wee hours of Wednesday morning when, according to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Det. Adam Garnier, Thousand Oaks Police Department patrol units responded to “a glass break alarm” at a local retail store.
As a result, upon arrival, the cops made contact with Brown and Marshak. They quickly determined the duo smashed the windows of the store and then entered with the intent to steal goods held for sale.
The ensuing investigation revealed Marshak and Brown to be in possession of “personal identifying information of a Thousand Oaks resident.” That resident reported that someone broke into her car the prior evening, taking “numerous items of personal property” from the vehicle.
Over the next 24 hours, TOPD detectives learned that Marshak and Brown had committed “a series of vehicle burglaries. ” They also committed multiple commercial burglaries.
Detectives obtained and executed a search warrant for Brown’s personal vehicle. That search lead to the discovery of evidence of “additional unreported vehicle burglaries and thefts.”
Consequently, Marshak and Brown went to Ventura County Jail. There they now face multiple charges of vehicle burglary and commercial burglary, with unspecified bail amounts.
