At 2:24am, while officers were searching inside the store, two officers watching the front of the store observed a male walking on the opposite side of Dobson Road that matched Esparza's description. Upon contact, Esparza admitted he had broken into the store and taken "ear gauges." He said the stolen property was at his mother's residence and gave consent to officers to retrieve the stolen property. His mother gave consent to officers to check for additional stolen property. Approximately $5,458 in stolen jewelry, ear gauges, belts, perfumes and sunglasses was recovered.
Esparza was booked for one count of Burglary 2nd Degree.
