SUMMARY:

On Thursday, February 16, 2017, at approximately 3:09 A.M., Barstow Police officers responded to a commercial burglary alarm at Coldwell Banker, 530 Barstow Road. The alarm activation covered glass break and interior motion at the business.

 

Officers arriving at the location observed a subject later identified as Christopher Hollos exiting the business through a door with what appeared to be a laptop computer. As the officers approached Hollos, he fled from them on foot. Additional responding officers set up a perimeter around the business in an effort to contain Hollos.

 

During a search of the business, officers located a broken window. During the perimeter search, officers found Hollos hiding in bushes located on the property. Officers also found two laptop computers and a computer monitor in the bushes near where Hollos was hiding.

 

A representative from the business responded and confirmed two laptop computers and a computer monitor were stolen from the interior of the business during the burglary. Officers processed the scene and collected evidence related to this burglary.    

Corporal Arthur arrested Hollos, who is currently on parole. Hollos was booked at the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Jail in Barstow for Penal Code 459 – Burglary and Penal Code 3056 – Parole Violation. 

 

Anyone with information regarding this investigation can contact Corporal Arthur at the Barstow Police Department at (760) 255-5111. Callers wishing to remain anonymous can call the We-tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip website at www.wetip.com.
