Two Arrested for Alleged Burglary of Marijuana Dispensary; Third Suspect Sought
Two individuals were recently arrested after a pursuit for the alleged burglary of a marijuana dispensary in San Andreas. A third suspect remains at large.
According to a press release by the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to reports of a burglary in progress at a marijuana dispensary on Angels Road just before 1:30 AM on August 18. Witnesses observed three masked individuals leaving the closed establishment, dressed in dark clothing and carrying merchandise from inside.
The suspects then fled the scene in a vehicle headed south on Highway 49, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The Sheriff’s Office, with help from officers with the Oakdale Police Department, located the suspect vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. The suspects reportedly did not yield, prompting a high-speed pursuit through the city and into rural Stanislaus County. The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office air support unit also joined the pursuit.
The pursuit ended when personnel from the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office deployed a tire deflation device, successfully immobilizing the vehicle on Church Street near Parker Road in Modesto. Two of the three suspects — Adolph Coronado (37) and Matthew Coronado (18), both of Fresno — were apprehended at the scene. One of them was reportedly uncooperative, resulting in the use of a K-9 officer.
The third suspect reportedly evaded capture on foot and remains at large, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Adolph Coronado and Matthew Coronado have been arrested and booked into the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility on suspicion of felony burglary and conspiracy charges. It was unclear at press time whether either of them had retained an attorney.
The investigation is ongoing, and authorities are seeking public assistance in identifying the third suspect. Individuals with relevant information are urged to contact the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office at 209-754-6500.
All persons arrested on suspicion of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
