After a teenager crashed his car into the yard of a residence in Coachella and caused damage to the garage and two cars parked at the home he was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Just before 1:00 am on Friday, 18-year-old Zackery Fabian Camarena was allegedly driving above the speed limit in a residential area when his car veered toward the side of the road and ended up in the front yard of a house where two cars were parked.

Camarena’s Toyota Corolla reportedly hit a 2017 Cadillac XTS that was sitting in the driveway and the collision caused it to slam into and break through the garage door. A classic 1962 Chevrolet Impala was parked inside of the garage, and the Cadillac smashed through and barreled into it.

After a string of burglaries beginning in March took place while the alleged victims were at funerals the authorities believe they have located and arrested the man responsible for the break-ins.

On March 7 a West Los Angeles resident was attending a funeral during the time that their home was being burglarized. Though the man who allegedly committed the offense was seen while in the act of stealing from the home they were unable to positively identify him.

A second burglary took place in Los Angeles on March 11 just after 2:00 p.m. while the occupants were also at a funeral. A man approached the home and rang the doorbell which activated a home security camera located inside of it. The suspect was caught on video while at the door and when no one answered he reportedly went to the back door of the home and tried to enter, but he was unable to get inside. He allegedly returned to the front of the house and kicked open the garage door which had an entrance to the residence, but the alarm system in place deterred him from pursuing the event further. The man, whose Mercedes was seen parked in the driveway of the home, pulled away but not before a detailed description of his automobile was uncovered.

A Florida man is suspected of constructing a contraption meant to cause injury by delivering a shock, and attaching it to the front door in an attempt to electrocute his wife who is currently with child.

On Tuesday, 32-year-old Michael Wilson, who is separated from his wife, allegedly told her that she should not use the garage door to enter her home because it was malfunctioning. He was also said to have made comments that involved keeping children from touching the front door. This alarmed his father-in-law and the authorities were notified about the questionable proclamation.

Flagler County Sheriff’s Department dispatched deputies to the house in order to investigate the situation, and they noticed charring near the handle of the door, and the door looked as if it was blocked off. They decided to enter the premises by kicking the door which reportedly threw a spark upon impact.

A Pennsylvania woman was taken into custody on December 23 when she was accused of assaulting firefighters who were working to put out a fire in a run-down garage.

The Pottsville Fire Department responded to an alert about a small fire burning in a decaying garage on the property of 36-year-old Kate Lynn Blatt, when it was discovered that part of the structure was set aflame by a homeless man. As crews worked to extinguish the flames Blatt was informed that she must take measures to secure the garage in order to deter other vagrants from attempting the same act in the future.

The fire department duty chief on scene reported that Blatt became ill-tempered and began quarreling with him. This caught the attention of two of the firefighters who tried to intervene and assist the chief in subduing Blatt, which caused her to become even more upset. Blatt then allegedly threatened to “knock out” the chief and she was asked by one of the firemen to refrain from assaulting anyone.
