It’s 2 AM in P.G., took 3 minutes to get to an alarm activation at a pharmacy.
The break-in triggered the pharmacy’s burglar alarm, and though officers arrived within three minutes of getting the call, the thieves were already gone. “We got there, and you could tell from standing across the street that the front door was ajar,”
After officers discovered the thieves had pried open the door, they searched the business and discovered it had been burglarized. Owner Dana Gordon arrived and provided officers “a very rough idea of what was taken,” Fenton said — items related to opioids.

Salinas resident Marcus Swingle, 29, was climbing out of the window of the Forest Hill Ace Hardware located at 1136 Forest Ave. in the Fairway Shopping Center at around 4 a.m. The officers were there to greet him.
Officers credited an observant citizen who had noticed someone who appeared to be breaking into the store. The citizen subsequently notified the police, providing them with a run-down of what the suspect was doing.

Police Cmdr. Rory Lakind said it appears the burglar got into the Pacific Grove Youth Center through an open window. He said Pacific Grove doesn’t typically have many nonresidential burglaries. With the youth center break-in following burglaries in the same week at nearby Hopkins Marine Station and St. Angela Merici church, police are investigating if the three crimes are related.

Caught a thief from Marina. If only there were some cops or something to patrol the streets maybe the thieves would go somewhere else.
Nicklaus Hall, 18, remained in Monterey County Jail this week without bail.
“We verbally told him that he was under arrest and to stop, and we caught him and took him to the ground,” Lakind said, adding that Hall probably tried to run because, “he was wanted, so he knew he was going to go away.”
Hall had a no-bail warrant for violation of probation from the previous burglary, according to Lakind, and police linked him to at least five other vehicle break-ins, which have become commonplace, in the area.
But even with Hall in jail, Pacific Grove police are still battling thieves. “We had a few more the other night, after he was arrested,” Lakind said.

Jeffery Rutt – the Pacific Grove resident arrested after leading deputies on a car chase two months ago when he was caught breaking into cars — has already pleaded guilty to multiple crimes and sentenced to three years in prison.
Although they live in the same P.G. home and share a last name, it’s unknown how Jeffrey Rutt is related to Jason Rutt, who was arrested for burglary in 2014 and drug offenses in 2012, when he was already on probation for an earlier offense. In the 2014 case, Jason Rutt, then 29, trashed a home on Sage Court while spending all day inside, making himself at home, rifling through the owner’s
possessions and stealing luggage and jewelry. “The house was basically ransacked, and food was eaten. He was probably there all day,” thenPGPD Cmdr. Cassie McSorley said at the time.
Stupid because he returned to a crime scent to continue his take, when cops investigating caught him.
Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies were doing a follow-up investigation early Tuesday near Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, where two burglaries, one theft from a vehicle as well as the theft of a vehicle, were reported between July 20 and July 27.
At about 8:50 a.m., deputies revisited one of the burglarized homes, on the 3000 block of Cormorant Road, and found Edward Vincent Caraccia allegedly burglarizing it. Deputies believe he entered the house through the rear windows.

The place has been robbed so many times it’s becoming a danger to the town.
The burglar happened in the early morning hours of April 17. According to Central Avenue Pharmacy, the suspects made off with several drugs, mostly Xanax.”They appear to be about 18 to 25 years of age. They appear to be Hispanic males about 5-foot-5-inches to 5-foot-7-inches,” said Gorman.

Jason Rutt released from jail on the loose again.
The incident began before sunrise when Rutt broke into several houses in Pacific Grove, including one where he entered a bedroom where children were sleeping, took a shower, and fed the children with bananas, according to police.
The house was on the 600 block of Acorn Court.
“Rutt entered through an unlocked door. He showered, ate and then went into a (child’s) bedroom. (He) was apparently feeding the small children in their bedroom,” McSorley said.
The homeowners did not realize there was an intruder until they heard a shower running, police said. They called 911 at 4:30 a.m.
Rutt ran out of the house, broke into two more houses nearby, and stole some property, McSorley said. He entered through unlocked garages.
The children who Rutt encountered were not harmed, but their parents were “obviously freaked out,” McSorley said.
Rutt was recently released from the Monterey County Jail and is on probation for burglary. His family lives in Pacific Grove and family members are cooperating with police.
