San Bernardino Detectives Bust Burglary Ring

After a rash of burglaries in the Pershing Ave. neighborhood a mini-crime wave has been stopped thanks to the diligent work of detectives with the San Bernardino Police Department.

Upon receiving a report of  a residential burglary occurring June 15 in the 3000 block of North Pershing Avenue, detectives noticed a pattern of several similar residential burglaries near the Pershing Avenue neighborhood. Using footage from nearby security cameras, police were able to identify a suspect, Demarcus Allen Black in the burglary.

As a result of a collaborative effort by District Crime Detectives and other investigators, the suspect was located and apprehended. During questioning he was found to be responsible for five additional burglaries. Black was charged with six (6) counts of residential burglary.

After charging him, detectives identified Anthony Allen Butler as an associate who also might have been involved in the crimes. Butler was located by investigators and found to have personal items in his possession taken from the burglaries. Butler was subsequently charged with three (3) counts of credit card fraud and one (1) count of possession of the stolen property.
