Burglars Arrested

By Steven Zimmerman

EL PASO COUNTY, TEXAS – This is another one fo the “how to ruin your life while young” crime report.

Michelle Camacho and Steven Angel Gamboa, both aged 17, were arrested for burglary of a building.

According to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Deputies were dispatched to a call on 3 April 2020 on the 800 block of Agua Clara Street. The call was for suspicious people in the neighbourhood. The information the Deputies received led to a traffic stop where building tools were seized as the people in the vehicle couldn’t prove ownership.

Then, on 4 April 2020, Deputies responded to a call at the 12800 block of Bales. This call was for a burglary of a building. Several tools were taken without consent from the property owner.

After an investigation, it was determined that the tools seized in the traffic stop were the same tools taken during the burglary on Bales.

On Friday, 17 April 2020, Sheriff’s Deputies took Michelle Camacho, age 17, and Steven Angel Gamboa, age 17 into custody and booked them into the El Paso County Detention Facility for Burglary of Building with a bond of $5,000.

Two sixteen-year-olds were taken into custody and referred to the Juvenile Probation Department in connection with the same burglary.

Both Camacho and Gamboa have posted bond and are back on the streets. If they were my kids, I would have left them there so they would have learned a lesson.

Keep an eye out for these two and lock up your property.
