FAIRFIELD, CA - Fairfield police are crediting an alert resident with thwarting two would-be burglars in a daytime burglary attempt Friday morning.
In a news release, the Fairfield Police Department reported that a resident was home alone when two people began ringing the doorbell. The resident, not recognizing the people, saw them through the peephole and didn't answer the door.
The bell continued a few times, but then ceased. A short time later, the resident noticed a man in the backyard attempting to open the rear slider with an object. At that point, according to the press release, the resident yelled at the man causing him and his accomplice to leave the area.
Fairfield police were called and responded to the area where they came upon two people walking near Hickory Avenue and Pecan Circle. Both were later identified by the homeowner as the people from the house.
A 15-year-old Fairfield girl was booked into juvenile hall along with 21-year-old Demarrea Gordon for attempted residential burglary and conspiracy.
