Two men were arrested Thursday, when police say they caught them trying to burglarize several Temecula businesses. 

Riverside County Sheriff's Sgt. Jon Wade says officers responded to the 27200 Block of Madison Avenue, near Jefferson and Winchester, when a burglary alarm sounded around 3:50 a.m.

When Temecula police officers got to the scene, they spotted two men running from a business in the complex, and attempting to hide under a car, Wade said.

"The investigation revealed three businesses had extensive property damage as the suspects attempted to gain entry into the building," Wade said.  "Three of the businesses had been forcibly broken into by the suspects."

Officers searched the area for any other possible suspects, but did not locate any, according to Wade.  The two men caught as they tried to hide were arrested.

"A surveillance camera video system captured the actions of the suspects and both men were arrested without incident," Wade said.

The two men— identified as 46-year-old Rayford Norris of Rubidoux and 50-year-old Danny Harris of Santa Ana— were each booked into the Murrieta jail on five counts of commercial burglary and felony vandalism, according to the sergeant.

Rubidoux and Santa Ana.........well that says volumes. Both look like highly educated and suave gentlemen that momentarily fell on hard times and needed a little extra to get by this month......LOL! The Southland is peppered with pukes. As the economy worsens, the printing of money breaks the monetary back and the nanny state stops providing for the lazy and the do nothings gangs will resort to kicking in your front door and taking whatever they need. Better have a plan....as this is only going to get uglier.

Bring back lynching. Worked well before... police are burdened by rules. Citizens are not. Blast away and stick a pocket knife in their corpse hands. Done and done. Print this. If I catch you? you will be crossing the river Jordan
