Two Arrested in Burglary Attempt of Apple Elk Grove Facility

Two former Apple employees, Dominic Aguilar and Richard Mejia, were arrested on Sunday for conspiracy to burglarize an Apple facility in Elk Grove, California, according to the Elk Grove Police Department.

The report said that the Elk Grove police received information that a burglary attempt might occur, and, in cooperation with Apple, set up surveillance at the site.

"On Sunday at 2:30 a.m., Detectives observed Dominic Aguilar and Richard Mejia gain access to Apple Computer grounds by cutting a hole in an exterior chain link fence. Once both suspects made their way onto Apple Computer property, they attempted to forcibly enter an exterior door to the business. The suspects were unsuccessful in their attempt and fled the area when Detectives approached. The suspects fled on foot into a nearby creek in an attempt to escape," according to the report.

Shortly thereafter, the two men were found and arrested.
