PRESS RELEASE

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                             January 15, 2014


POINT OF CONTACT:                                                        Lt Neal Griffin, 760-839-4444

On February 22, 2012, Girl Scouts from Troop #2034 were selling cookies outside a local Escondido grocery store.  As is custom, the Scouts had left a “tip jar” on the table for people who were interested in making a contribution.  At about 4:30 PM, a man ran past the table, stole the tip jar and then jumped in a vehicle and fled the scene.  A “heads-up” troop leader memorized the license plate of the fleeing car and notified Escondido PD.

The police investigation led to the identity of a suspect: David Betancort, 21 of Escondido. On February 27th officers and detectives of the Escondido Police Department, assisted by the U.S. Marshals located Betancort in a residence in Escondido.  Betancort was known to have warrants issued for his arrest on unrelated cases.  When officers went to contact Betancort he fled the home.  After a short foot pursuit, Betancort was taken into custody for the arrest warrants.  The EPD investigation into the original theft will be forwarded to the San Diego District Attorney with a recommendation that he charged with petty theft.
