Two Fortuna residents are in county jail today as a result of their arrest in connection with a commercial burglary yesterday.
At about 7 a.m. on Sept. 24, Fortuna Police Department personnel responded to a reported burglary at a business on 12th Street, where law enforcement discovered evidence of a forced entry and several missing computers and other items.
During the course of their investigation, FPD obtained a search warrant for a nearby unit at the Park West Apartments at 137 12th Street. Upon executing the warrant, FPD recovered several of the stolen items and arrested David Hanna, 21, and Chyanne Smith, 20.
Hanna was booked into county jail on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property and being a felon in possession of ammunition. Smith was also booked on stolen property charges as well as possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
“This investigation is still ongoing and we expect more arrests in the near future,” FPD detective Tim Dias stated in a release.
According to a further statement by FPD sergeant Charles Ellebrecht, residents are encouraged to call an FPD WeTip Crime Line to be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 for any assistance in this case. That number is (800) 78-CRIME.
