2 Arrested in French Valley Home Burglary

Suspects Joseph Hayden and Brittany Ball were taken into custody shortly after a home in the 35000 block of Via Santa Catalina was burglarized Tuesday afternoon, a sheriff's sergeant said.

Two suspects were in custody after a French Valley home was allegedly burglarized Tuesday afternoon, sheriff's officials said.

Joseph Hayden, 20, and Brittany Ball, 22, both of Temecula were arrested a short time after they allegedly broke into a home in the 35000 block of Via Santa Catalina, said Sgt. David Cardoza, in a news release.

Cardoza said that at approximately 2:48 p.m. Tuesday, deputies from the Southwest Station were called to the home regarding a burglary in progress. They arrived within minutes of the call being dispatched, he said.

"Preliminary investigation revealed that the resident was inside the home when two suspects knocked on the front door, received no answer, and jumped the fence to the back yard," the sergeant said.

"The suspects entered the home through an unlocked rear door, and began to unplug electronic items inside the residence. The homeowner confronted the suspects, who fled the residence on foot before deputies arrived."

The victim described the alleged burglars as a white male and a white female in their 20s, Cardoza said.

Deputies searched the area or the suspects, who were located nearby and positively identified by the victim, Cardoza said.

Hayden and Ball were booked into the Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. Both were being held in lieu of $25,000 bail as of Wednesday, according to sheriff's jail records, and were due in court Thursday.

Anyone with further information on the case was asked to call the Southwest Station at 951-696-3000.

You need to watch out for the guys selling meat out of their truck! I swear they are the ones that broke into my home. They would come by on a regular basis and POUND on the door. They figured out my routine. Hit us in the middle of the day. Broke in through the garage side door and busted the door to get in. As I was sitting outside talking to the police, guess who drives by? Two dirtbags in the meat truck. After that day, they never came back. FYI it was Prime Select. You NEVER see them driving around with just one guy!

How do we know they arent, Troy? But see, there are more sores on their faces close up. I think that means meth. Makes them scratch any little thing till it turns into sores even on their faces. Also I dont know the percentage, but this age bracket is usually getting drug money. Or even rent, or food money because the rest of their money goes on drugs.
