Intruder enters a home, is arrested

A 39-YEAR-OLD transient from the Los Angeles area was arrested Saturday afternoon after allegedly stealing a package and walking into a Garden Grove home.

A bold intruder who walked into a home in Garden Grove after allegedly stealing a package from the front porch was arrested Saturday afternoon.

According to Sgt. Mark Lord of the GGPD, the incident occurred in the 12600 block of Fieldstone Lane shortly around 12:45 p.m.


The owner of a residence was watching through a “Ring” surveillance camera and saw a man taking a package from in front of the home. The suspect then returned a few minutes later, according to police, and went into the house where he saw a woman lying on her bed.

The suspect tried to convince her to take a shower, which she refused. Her mother came home and found the suspect in her daughter’s bedroom; he claimed to be from Amazon and was talking to her.

Fleeing on foot, the suspect was located an hour later after a report of a man jumping into a backyard at 6592 Chapman Ave. He was detained a short distance away and was identified as the man wanted in the burglary on Fieldstone.

Arrested was Donald Mayberry, 39, a transient on parole from the Los Angeles area. He was booked into Orange County Jail on a residential burglary charge.
