Parolee caught with stolen TV in duffle bag

Two arrested for Victorville theft

VICTORVILLE • A parolee was arrested for burglary after being spotted walking down the road with a television in a red duffel bag.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department received a call from a residence on the 13100 block of Northstar at 5:27 p.m. Tuesday, Sgt. Puntnam at the Victorville sheriff’s station said Wednesday.

“A citizen called in who had seen a male walking down the street carrying a TV in a red duffel bag,” Puntnam explained.

The caller then observed the male entering a red vehicle driven by a female further down the street.

Police responded and located the vehicle entering the garage of a residence at 13000 Santa Maria Place in Victorville. Deputies contacted Devin Simms, a parolee at large, who was attempting to exit from the rear of the residence, according to Puntnam.

Simms claimed that the television belonged to him, but deputies confirmed that it was taken from a residence on Northstar Street.

Patrice Latoyia was also arrested as an accomplice to the burglary, according to Puntnam.

Neither suspect has a criminal record in San Bernardino County, according to a search of court records.
