Royal Oaks Burglary Suspect Wanted in Santa Cruz County

The man got away when three other suspected burglars were arrested Tuesday night.

Monterey County sheriff's investigators are looking for a man who evaded deputies after participating in a residential burglary on Tuesday night.

Deputies said two burglars were trying to enter a home near the intersection of Maher Road and Royal Oak Place around 11:35 p.m. when they were confronted by the homeowner. The two then fled down the driveway to a green, 2011 Chevy Trailblazer with two other people in it and jumped in.

The four burglars were stopped by deputies on San Juan Road. Deputies arrested three suspects, 21-year-old Olwaldo Toscano, 18-year-old Marcial Casillo, and a 17-year-old on suspicion of burglary. Jimmy Moreno, 18, evaded deputies after he got out of the car and ran.

An outstanding, no-bail Santa Cruz County felony warrant has been issued for Moreno's arrest. He is believed to be in the Watsonville or Santa Cruz area and is known to carry weapons, deputies said. Moreno is described as 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 138 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of a barcode on his left cheek. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt and blue jeans, according to the Sheriff's Office. Moreno is suspected of burglary, participating in a gang and resisting arrest.
