Two of three suspects who allegedly forced their way into a Wildomar home and burglarized the residence Friday morning are being sought by police, a sergeant has announced.

The suspects, described as three black male adults, forced their way into the residence in the 33000 block of Wilson Street around 10 a.m., according to sheriff’s Sgt. Ken Chaffin.

A neighbor reported the incident and when police arrived on scene they were able to collar one of the suspects, but the other two fled.

Police allegedly found stolen items as they made the arrest, including a pillowcase containing a jewelry box and jewelry, as well as two laptop computers.

The victim, who was not at her Wildomar residence during the incident, was contacted at her place work by police. She returned home to identify the property as her own, according to the sergeant.

“The recovered property value was estimated to be in excess of $2,000,” Chaffin reported.

The one suspect who was captured at the scene was identified as Ronald Dawayne Taylor, 21, of Hawthorne. He was subsequently booked into Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of burglary, the sergeant reported.

“The two outstanding suspects have yet to be identified,” Chaffin continued. “The investigation is ongoing. Anyone having information regarding this matter is encouraged to contact Officer Melendez, at the Wildomar Police Department, by calling (951) 245-3300.”

'...forced their way into the residence in the 33000 block of Wilson Street around 10 a.m.,...' that's a brazen time of the day to break into a random home....did the homeowner know these kids..??

ChrisG - I have to disagree. This is one incident in one neighborhood in which a neighbor was watching and called. With a proper neighborhood watch program it is possible that all the perpetrators could have been caught as law enforcement has a tendency to respond quicker to calls from watch members than the general public.

@dog I don't hate white people I am white, I don't hate anyone you're clueless & ignorant. Your argument doesn't make any sense.
Dog January 18, 2014 at 12:43 PM
Katie...rehab is just a phone call away...things will start to make sense after you've been sober awhile...good luck
Katie January 18, 2014 at 12:46 PM
@dog ignorance is bliss. You're a fucking idiot & a waste of my time.

Hawthorne? Anyone remember a town named Sunnymead? I remember when it started up and when it was a really nice area for new home buyers and young families. What happened to it? Anyone? Why is that area such a $**thole today?
Steve Newman January 18, 2014 at 03:46 PM
Always- scummy mead became Moreno Valley- enough said. There is still a sunnymead blvd for those who want to remember the " old " days. #Dog- Compton has standards/

@ Katie why do you think Ken is racist, because he mentioned neighborhood watch?
Katie January 18, 2014 at 08:06 PM
@gayle it was directed towards another Ken. Not Ken Mayes. They must have taken his comment down it was the first one on the page but it's gone now. Thank God.
Ken Mayes January 18, 2014 at 08:16 PM
Katie - thanks for the clarification. I know Neighborhood Watch Programs received a black eye recently, but California is not a right to carry state and if properly managed watch programs are an asset to law enforcement. The more eyes there are means less opportunity for crime by anyone.

Why do so many of you use these news stories to be judgmental and argue back and forth; it is very sad. Our soldiers are over in danger zones fighting for our country and several of you it seems have too much time on your hands. Why don't you try and do something helpful for others in need of some type of help in this life instead of using the energy you have been so blessed with wasting it on arguing? We all have differing opinions on so many topics but why not just agree to disagree and voice your opinions without putting each other down for them?
Josh January 19, 2014 at 11:50 AM
Welcome to the internet Nancy. This is the only place where losers have a voice. Thier comments have no redeeming value because they're losers. Thier goal is to say something that will get you to react and talk back because nobody acknowledges them in the real world. As soon as you can wrap your head around this and realize you are powerless to change it, your visit to the internet will be much more enjoyable. If you let them bait you into a useless argument then you also may become a loser so please be careful.
Nancy January 19, 2014 at 12:52 PM
Thank you Josh. And yes, I do not plan to argue with anyone; I know some people waste valuable time arguing over "THEIR POINT MUST BE HEARD KIND OF THING". My goal is to do my best to try and raise the awareness level of how short life here truly is....value their lives and others' lives, that is all.

We have a neighborhood watch here in my part of Wildomar. Works OK, of course calling 911 is secondary to protecting ourselves. ;-)
oz1901 January 19, 2014 at 02:00 PM
@Josh...you got it 1000% right! The instant a "discussion" is reduced to accusations of one or the other being a such and such, there is no longer any point in further exchanges with the idiot who starts it; you would just be feeding into that person's angst. This discussion should delve into how to prevent/avoid these types of crimes to which anyone of us could fall victim; no matter how big and bad you might think you are!

@Toni McCalister (Patch editor): I love the open forum "The Patch" provides its readership with little or no censorship. However, hate talk should be screened! Presumably intelligent persons (who probably do not know each other) making vile and baseless attacks on each other should first be warned, then restricted from further commentary. Stick to the issue! If you can't offer positive solutions, actions or commentary...THEN SHUT THE HELL UP!
LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT January 19, 2014 at 02:23 PM
That's right oz1901 why don't you shut the hell up!
LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT January 19, 2014 at 02:24 PM
Ken neighborhood watch is a great idea, how do you join?
Ken Mayes January 19, 2014 at 03:28 PM
Lake Elsinore Resident - good question, should be brought up at a City Council meeting because the Sheriff's department provides very little support, I have seen several started and fall apart because a sheriff will show up for an initial meeting of a neighborhood and arrange for signs and that appears to be it. There was a recently held meeting for block captain training at Lake Elsinore station which was not mentioned by the sheriff's representative at the Council meeting held a week prior. This is a low priority of the sheriff's department and I feel will need to be supplemented by the City Council in order make it effective city wide. It is far cheaper than hiring more deputies with the limited funds available to the city.
LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT January 19, 2014 at 03:32 PM
Thank you Ken, I think many of us will look into this.

"Why do so many of you use these news stories to be judgmental and argue back and forth; it is very sad." - Nancy _________________________________________________ Nancy, conversing with others, on almost every single issue today, eventually invokes real feelings, passion and beliefs. To ask anyone to openly converse using restricted and limited values, doesn't let the true nature of conversation happen. It only stifles it. Yes, obscenities may indeed be out of bounds but with restricting the intensity of one's feelings, are you not trying to mold their words into your own? If the act of speech was limited to only certain words, would it no longer be useful?

@lakeelsinoreresident: Your hostility is breathtaking! Methinks perhaps you are part of the problem! I've read some of your posts and conclude that you are a griper, a complainer and generally unhappy about most things. If there is any joy in your life, it is doing precisely all of the aforementioned. Your childlike and hostile response to my earlier comments exemplifies your immaturity. Grow up!
Libi Uremovic January 20, 2014 at 10:44 AM
people that do not follow their government blindly are always accused of being the 'bad person'..... i remember watching old nazi film footage as a kid and wondering how the people ever allowed that to happen ... it's easy to look back on the past, but for some reason the masses have no ability to comprehend their present situations...... it's more than ironic that boomers created a government far more corrupt than we ever fought against as kids...
Libi Uremovic January 20, 2014 at 10:49 AM
oz1901 is another imaginary character that opened an account just for this article ....
LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT January 20, 2014 at 04:39 PM
Libi you are correct with the Nazi stuff and there are a lot of moron's in this world many write on the Patch, but I don't read their babble. ROTFLMAO
oz1901 January 20, 2014 at 08:20 PM
My Dear Libi Uremovic, this news blog does not belong to you! As far as I know, it is open to all...including imaginary characters. It is a figment of your imagination...as am I. As for any comparisons to the Nazi regime regarding anything I have written, I can only shake my head in disbelief. If you are so repulsed by what the Nazis did, why are you not demanding US intervention into internal/external hostilities in countries throughout the Middle East, several African nations, Chechnya, Uzbekistan and a host of other areas of the world. News Item: genocide, apartheid, homicide and most any other 'cide' you might wish to cite, are occurring in this time and place in history throughout the world. You don't have to reference Hitler's Third Reich to underscore whatever point you might be trying to make; there are plenty examples of similar events today! Your comment crediting Boomers (America???) for creating government worst than the oppressors and murderers of the 20th century would be laughable if they weren't so sad. Have you not heard about World War II? A little reading would bring you up to date to make a more learned comparison of then vs. now! To paraphrase Golda Meir: "Peace will come when our enemies love their children more than they hate us." As for my opening an account "just for this article", I have lived in the area for almost five years. Criminal activity affects my neighborhood as much as it does yours; no matter how long you've been here. Whatever tenure you might have equals the same amount of voting power any other old timer or newly arrived person has: one citizen, one vote! My post was directed at the persons attacking each others motives (as you've done mine), rather than offering positive feedback to resolve the problem. Take a chill pill and smile, kiss a loved one and don't worry, be happy! Your Imaginary Friend.
