Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 16-year-old West Valley High School student for burglary of an unoccupied mobile home after the teen’s laundry, clothes, books and student ID card were found inside.
The owner of the mobile home also found beer cans and bedding inside the structure, indicating the suspect might have been living there, sheriff’s deputies said.
The teen apparently opened the mobile home’s door and was about to step inside, police said, while the owner was inside checking on the property.
The mobile home is located in the 400 block of N. Ella.
The suspect’s mother told sheriff’s deputies that her son had not been living at home for the past month.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested the suspect Thursday at a buffet restaurant where he was working.
