Parents Claim Teens were Falsely Accused of Burglary
RANCHO VIEJO – Four teenagers and one adult accused of burglary of a habitation are fighting for their innocence.
The parents of the teens say the charges are false.
"You shouldn't just be able to charge them without some kind of proof of something," say the parents.
Cesar Rivas says he and two other boys were invited to a friend’s house last weekend in Rancho Viejo.
"We came here, we didn't have any alcohol we didn't have any drugs. When we got here the two girls were already there waiting for us. So I’m thinking it’s just a hangout out cool," says Rivas.
Rivas says he thought it was his friend’s house and didn’t expect to be arrested.
The Rancho Viejo Police Department sent a probable cause affidavit stating, “All subjects admitted to making entry into the home through the back patio door that led to a bedroom which is located on the northeast side of the home without the effective consent of the owner.”
Police Chief M. Cruz explains no theft was committed at the home.
