Twin Brothers Arrested for Stealing from Vacant Homes

Here’s a new business model for the criminally industrious:

Brothers Julio and Juan Villaneuva, 37-year old twins, were arrested by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and charged with theft and conspiracy. Undercover investigators arrested the pair after answering an ad on Craigslist for large kitchen appliances. The detectives went to a Moreno Valley home where they discovered expensive Viking and Thermador ovens, microwave ovens, dishwashers and even trash compactors. Just as important, a computer print-out of homes for sale in Riverside County was found. Total value of the brothers’ inventory was estimated at $100,000.

The Villaneuvas are currently spending their time in the Vista jail; Julio Villaneuva has also been charged with methamphetamine possession.
