HANFORD — A man was arrested on suspicion of burglary Monday after sheriff’s deputies found his shoes had the same pattern found at the scene of a burglarized home, officials said.
About two hours after a home on the 7700 block of 14th Avenue was burglarized, Kings County Sheriff’s officials said a concerned citizen reported a suspicious man, identified as 27-year-old Robert Rebolo, walking out of an orchard.
When deputies arrived, they said they spoke to Rebolo and found his shoes had the same pattern that was found at the scene of a residential burglary that had occurred around 12:45 p.m. that day.
During the investigation earlier in the day, deputies said they discovered two rifles and other property was stolen from the home and noticed the shoe impressions around the home.
Rebolo was questioned and confessed to committing the burglary, deputies said. Rebolo was also found to be on active parole and was not in compliance with his parole terms.
While searching for the suspect, deputies said they located the two stolen rifles in an orchard south of the residence. Those firearms were recovered and given back to the home owner.
Sheriff’s officials said Rebolo was subsequently booked in to the Kings County Jail on suspicion of burglary, grand theft of firearms and a parole violation. His bail was set at $100,000.
