FREMONT — Two suspects believed responsible for committing multiple crimes in the San Francisco Bay Area have been arrested and released. They were picked up by officers responding to a report of two persons arguing inside a vacant house.
The suspects allegedly burglarized several convenience stores, stealing lottery tickets and cigarettes. One such burglary occurred July 5 at Fremont Arco, located at 35900 Fremont Boulevard.
Security cameras recorded two persons stealing approximately $3,500 worth of lottery tickets and cigarettes worth several thousand dollars. Detectives reviewing the recordings identified potential suspects.
On July 8, officers responded to 37697 Third Street and located a stolen vehicle parked outside. A K-9 unit was used to search the interior of the house, where two transients were apparently squatting.
Evidence recovered during the search linked the pair to several crimes, including the burglary at Fremont Arco. Detectives have notified other agencies about the suspects.
Jacy M. Meier, 40, and Jazzmin Barboza, 32, were both booked on various charges at the Fremont Detention Facility. They were immediately released to protect them from potential Covid virus exposure. Both are repeat offenders with numerous prior arrests.
