Indio, Calif., After a lengthy burglary investigation, two arrests have been made; one arrest of a female suspect directly connected to the burglary and a second arrest of a male related to a warrant.

According to Sergeant Eller of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, on July 26, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Palm Desert Station’s Burglary Suppression Unit began investigating a vehicle burglary that occurred near the 72000 block of Hwy 74, Palm Desert.

The team’s subsequent investigation revealed that a female suspect used the victim’s credit cards at a local area business shortly after the theft.

Through thorough and exhaustive investigative means, the suspect was identified as 28-year-old, Indio resident, Yesenia Pacheco Palomino. Members of the Burglary Suppression Team located Palomino and she was taken into custody without incident. At the time of her arrest Palomino was found to be in possession of additional stolen property, that was identified as belonging to the victim.

A records check revealed on October 14, Palomino was booked at the Larson Justice Center in Indio for carrying a loaded firearm, child endangerment and falsely impersonating another for financial gain.
