On October 19, 2012, at approximately 2:30 AM, members of the Escondido Police Department’s Tactical Operations Unit and Gang Investigations Unit served a search warrant in the 700 Block of Mission Grove Place. The search warrant was related to a case earlier in the week where two subjects shot at a moving vehicle in the same general vicinity.
As a result of the investigation and the positive outcome of the search warrant, two subjects were arrested in relation to the shooting. Cesar Alejandro Carreon, 20 years old and a juvenile subject were arrested at the scene. Both are residents of Escondido. Both subjects were charged with PC 664/187, Attempted Murder, PC 186.22, Gang Enhancement, PC 496, Possession of Stolen Property and several weapons violations.
During the search, three firearms, ammunition, a ballistic helmet and several computers were located. At this point, one of the computers has been linked with a recent burglary. Detectives from the Crimes of Property Unit are attempting to determine if the other computers are stolen.
