NILAND — County Sheriff's Office deputies and Calipatria police officers worked together to catch three men accused of burglarizing a Niland restaurant.
Sheriff's Investigator Johnie B. Higgins said a woman was driving by the My Magic Castle restaurant on Highway 111 here about 7:30 p.m. when she saw two men standing near the restaurant and one of the windows broken.
She called the Sheriff's Office, which requested assistance from Calipatria police.
The woman then drove around the restaurant to look at the suspects again. This time she saw three men, one of whom was carrying what appeared to be a radio.
She told sheriff's dispatchers the men left the scene and headed north on Highway 111.
Calipatria Police Chief Reggie Gomez said officers Eric Granada and Cory VanDriessche responded to the assistance call.
After they arrived in Niland, they were told by a dispatcher the suspects were seen heading to an apartment complex at 17 W. 4th St.
