Deputies and a sheriff’s aviation helicopter teamed up to locate and arrest a Crestline man who allegedly had stolen more than $3,000 worth of property on Feb. 14, according to a news release from the Twin Peaks sheriff’s station.

Neighbors had checked on the house and notified the homeowners’ daughter of the circumstances in the 900 block of Cedar Drive in Crestline. Upon arrival, she discovered that windows were broken and the doors were open at her parents’ house. Bedroom sets, televisions, dishes and other household goods were stolen. She also found a knife in the house.

Deputy Nic Ferronato responded to the residential burglary report around 11:04 a.m. While en route to the location, Ferronato noticed a suspect loading a television into a vehicle. Ferronato attempted to make contact, but the suspect fled into his residence in the 900 block of Oak Drive.

Deputies and the helicopter crew located Fenn Erekson, 36, hiding in a storage shed behind his home. They allege that Erekson was in possession of stolen items, which were returned to the victims.

According to the press release, Erekson also had a no-bail warrant for his arrest out of Los Angeles County. He was taken into custody without further incident and was booked into the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino. He has been charged with California Penal Code §459-F, first degree burglary; PC §496(a), possession of stolen property over $950; and his no-bail warrant.

Court records show that Erekson pleaded not guilty to all counts at his arraignment on Feb. 16. A public defender has been appointed to represent Erekson. His pre-preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 27, and his preliminary hearing will be March 1.

Anyone with information regarding this case should contact Deputy Nic Ferronato at the Twin Peaks Station by calling (909) 336-0600 or the WeTip hotline at 1 (800) 78-CRIME.
