MARICOPA, Ariz. -- Two men have been charged with commercial burglary and criminal trespass for allegedly breaking into a business in Maricopa.
Police were called to the 19000 block of N. John Wayne Parkway early Wednesday morning after an employee of a neighboring business was awakened by barking dogs.
The employee called 911 after noticing that the front door of the business was open and lights were on.
Officers arrived on scene and reportedly saw Sergio Carlos Cochran, 18, and Aldo Eduardo Espinoza-Delgado, 21, leaving the business with a cash register and bags of dog food.
The two suspects ran back into the business after seeing police. The Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and the Ak-Chin Police Department joined Maricopa Police in surrounding the building.
After about an hour, Cochran and Espinoza-Delgado exited the business without incident.
Following their arrest, it was learned that Espinoza-Delgado had three arrest warrants for failure to appear out of the Maricopa City Court. One warrant was for assault, while the other two were for underage consumption.
Both Espinoza-Delgado and Cochran have been booked into the Pinal County Adult Detention Center.
