Three teenage adults were arrested early Wednesday, March 24 when they were caught after breaking into a building at Ceres High School.
At 12:50 a.m. Ceres Police officers responded to a silent alarm sounding from Ceres High School’s men’s locker room. Officer Nicholas Welsh was the first to arrive and saw three men coming from the area of the men’s locker room. The three began running westbound through the campus towards Central Avenue. The three suspects ignored Welsh’s continued command to and stop and continued running to the Central Avenue side of the school.
Suspect Daniel Ayala, 18, of Modesto, jumped the fencing as Officer Aaron Pinion arrived with his patrol car. He was apprehended as he was running northbound on Central Avenue.
The two other suspects, Alsiddiq Alkanshali, 18, of Ceres, and Carlos Linares, 19, of Modesto, ran toward the northern boundary of the campus where they jumped the fence and were nabbed in a backyard of a house in the 2200 block of Thomas Street.
Officers learned that the suspects had shimmied up the wall of the gym and accessed the men’s locker room through a skylight. All three suspects were booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charged of burglary and resisting arrest.
