On Monday, police say the Sparta building was burglarized. This is the second time the businesses inside the building were targeted. Just a few days ago, the Sparta building was burglarized.
After checking out the surveillance video, an officer recognized a man in the video as 42-year-old Joseph Miyazaki. Officers located him at the Gospel Mission where he admitted to the crime. They say that arrest led them 22-year-old Cameron Manning who also admitted to the burglary. Police say a third person, 50-year-old David Jones, was not involved in the burglaries but took some of the stolen property.
“We think based on what we’re seeing in the surveillance video, they came in through a type of a roof access. So, they are working on securing the roof better so it doesn’t happen again,” said Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau.
Police say the burglars stole over six thousand dollars worth of electronics and equipment.
