Burglar Arrested After Victim Recognizes Him Wearing Shirt

Mynor Calderon arrested in connection to January 6 incident

By Sam Catanzaro. 

Santa Monica police recently arrested a home burglar after the victim recognized the suspect wearing his own shirt while officers were at the scene of the crime. 

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on January 6, dispatchers took a report of a burglary that occurred at a residence located in the 200 block of California Avenue where it was reported a safe was taken. A forensics specialist responded to take photos and lift latent prints. 

When the forensics specialist was talking with the victim outside of the residence, a male later identified as Mynor Calderon, walked by them. 

“The victim immediately noticed that Calderon was wearing a shirt that belonged to him,” the SMPD said. “The victim and Forensics Specialist walked back to the unit and discovered his front door was now closed and locked. SMPD Officers, including a K9 officer and his partner, responded to investigate further. Officers searched the residence and located Calderon inside a bedroom.”

He was taken into custody without incident. 

According to police, Calderon–described by police as a 23-year-old homeless man– was carrying a backpack and holding property belonging to the victim. 

In addition, he also initially provided police officers with a fictitious name: Jose Manuel Rojas. 

“At the station, SMPD officers learned his true identity and discovered that he had a No Bail warrant for Assault with a Deadly Weapon out of Los Angeles,” the SMPD said. 

Calderon was booked for his offenses and is being held at Men’s Central Jail in Downtown Los Angeles. He is expected to appear in court on January 26 on felony charges filed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
