VICTIM: Multiple Victims
CASE AGENT Detective Peter D’Andrea
On February 27, 2017, at approximately 2:44 PM, Corporal Caliboso was dispatched to the 1700 block of Church Street in reference to a report of a residential burglary. The Victim reported she left her residence for a brief period of time and upon returning observed her garage door open and one of her windows broken out. It appeared the Victim’s return home scared off the burglar, as several items were left in the garage, to include a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun, which one of the suspects removed from a bedroom.
Evidence Technician Sabrina Ellis responded to the residence and processed the scene. Evidence Technician Ellis was able to locate several items of evidence, which were sent to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Scientific Investigations Division for processing. Evidence helped to identify David Preston as a suspect in this burglary.
Detective D’Andrea began investigating the case and was able to obtain additional evidence linking Preston to additional residential burglaries. Preston was on Felony Probation at the time of the burglaries.
On August 24, 2017, at approximately 10:46 AM, Preston was contacted in the 900 block of Armory Rd. and arrested without incident.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Peter D’Andrea at (760) 255-5183 or at the Barstow Police Department at (760) 256-2211.
