Porsche Driving Burglary Suspect Arrested Near Cabazon Outlets

Maria Aguilar, 27, was booked into the county jail on suspicion of burglary, receiving stolen property and conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor, jail records indicate.

A San Diego woman suspected of committing vehicle burglaries at a Cabazon shopping center with her 15-year-old sister was out on bond for $5,000 bail Saturday.

Maria Aguilar, 27, was booked into the county jail on suspicion of burglary, receiving stolen property and conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor, jail records indicate.

She was ordered back to court for arraignment Jan. 30.

Aguilar is suspected of breaking into vehicles at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets, 48400 Seminole Drive and taking more than $1,500 worth of Coach brand purses, iPhones, jewelry and other items on Friday afternoon.

When deputies found her in a parking lot near the mall, she was driving a Porsche Cayenne with paper plates, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. James Burton wrote in a news release.

Inside the Porsche were currency -- both foreign and domestic -- shaved keys  and additional metal dealer plates.

As sheriff's deputies were processng the suspects for the first burglary that had been reported about 4:40 p.m., another call came in from an alleged victim missing an iPhone, jewelry and wallets.

The items reported missing matched items found in the Porsche, the sergeant wrote.

The teen was taken to Juvenile Hall.

Think she'll show for that January 30 arraignment? Heh...

Oh joy... A family member teaching her 15 year-old sister how to be a burglar. This young gal is growing up with 3 strikes against her, before she even reaches maturity.

With all the stuff she had in her car, sounds like an organized operations. Hope more clues become evident.

What is their immigration status?
Karla Payne December 02, 2012 at 11:39 PM
That was my first question, too.
Karla Payne December 02, 2012 at 11:40 PM
Not likely, Ern.

William john g. Your question has nothing to do whit immigration you only ask because she is brown. Go to hell. Racis.
Karla Payne December 02, 2012 at 11:47 PM
Nopal, the vast majority of the crimes being committed here are perpetuated by people with Hispanic surnames. That's hardly "racist." It's fact.
David Rempel December 03, 2012 at 01:55 PM
To be fair, if it is true that "most of the crimes here are perpetuated by people with Hispanic surnames" it is likely because they are a near majority of the population. Citi-data states that 43% of Banning claims to be white while 41% claims to be hispanic. Adding those who didn't fill out the census and there may be a flip in those numbers. Thats not racist, thats a fact. It is also a fact that those who are here illegally do have above average participation in crime. In fact, all of them have committed at least one crime, that being illegal entry

I'm thinking the whole valley needs a good house cleaning. Vermin of any kind beware. The crime level has gotten to be really disturbing! Who's minding this store?
Dex December 03, 2012 at 06:56 PM
Thats the problem, no one is minding the store. She's driving a Porsche and the bail is set at 5K. Crime is too easy, and too profitable. The deterrants are not strong or harsh enough. She will be on the street again when this all blows over, doing the same thing. The district attorney has a revolving door, and the criminals know it. Put her in shackles and make her repay her debt to society for a year or so doing community service projects. I bet she would think twice about breaking the law then.

i think to be fair we shouldn't blame the individual,we are going through rough times and if our president did what he promised we would not have situations like this one or at least less of these,to me it looks like this young woman is just trying to get by like i think we all are especially in california were every household has or knows of someone that has been incarcerated or is on probation who are we to judge so please stop pointing fingers because he who points 1 finger has 3 pointing back at him......
Karla Payne December 04, 2012 at 04:40 PM
Are you kidding??? She committed 2 crimes (at least) and made her 15 y.o. sister an accessory. "Getting by" doesn't mean needing Coach purses, iPhones, and jewelry. She seems to be getting by, because she owns a Porsche--unless it was stolen, too. She was caught red-handed and deserves to be punished. BTW, I don't know anyone who has been ever incarcerated or has been on probation.
Mariana Zuelsdorf December 04, 2012 at 06:45 PM
I agree with Karla and have no problem blaming the individual. For whatever reason, she decided to steal items she 'needed' while 'just trying to get by'. No one really 'needs' a Gucci purse in order to survive. By stealing from stores, she is stealing from everyone. We all pay the price for theft. BTW, I don't personally know anyone who has been incarcerated or on probation either.
Dex December 04, 2012 at 10:48 PM
Julio, please leave your house open and your cars unlocked tonight, as I am just trying to get by myself and am in need of more stuff. Thanks in advance.
Karla Payne December 05, 2012 at 12:49 AM
Dex: LOL
