A pair of alleged burglars were arrested over the weekend for breaking into a Lockwood home Friday evening, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call around 6:05 p.m. Friday of a forced entry and burglary into a locked home in the 62900 block of Argyle Road in Lockwood, sheriff’s officials said. The suspects, Paul Rivera, 21, and Kelly Holcomb, 20, loaded several pieces of audio and video equipment, a hydro sprayer and a wheel barrow into the back of their blue Ford truck, according to the sheriff’s office.

Neighbors confronted the two men when they saw the suspects leaving the victim’s home in their truck. The suspects then got out of the car and fled on foot, sheriff’s officials said. Deputies searched the area with the help of a California Highway Patrol helicopter and found Holcomb’s mother at the suspect vehicle’s registered address.

The suspect’s mother told deputies that her son was with Rivera in  the truck. Deputies later found Rivera and arrested him, while Holcomb turned himself in on Saturday, according to the sheriff’s office. Both suspects admitted to burglarizing the home, sheriff’s officials said.
