A 19-year-old man was arrested Friday morning after Salinas police officers spotted him jumping a residential fence after a burglary. Shortly before 11 a.m., police responded to a report of a burglary in progress in the 300 block of Cross Avenue, and when an officer walked up to the home, he saw a suspect jumping the back fence toward Williams Road. Soon afterward, another officer saw a similar suspect in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 500 block of Williams Road, police said. The suspect saw the officer and ran up a set of stairs that led to an apartment, according to police. A neighbor identified the apartment that the suspect entered, and after several failed attempts to have someone inside the apartment open the front door, the door was forced open by police. Preston Cuhna, 19, was found in a bedroom acting like he was asleep, but officers immediately recognized him as the suspect who ran from the parking lot. Cuhna was arrested, and some of the burglary victim’s jewelry was found in one of his pockets. He was booked into county jail on suspicion of burglary and resisting arrest.
