Suspect’s Getaway Vehicle Gets Stuck, Suspects Unknowingly Ask Victim For Help, Suspects Stuck In Jail From Bail Bondsman in Los Angeles County

On Friday, November 4, 2011, Palmdale Station deputies arrested Joseph Rakisits (Male 29) and William Gallardo (Male 32) after their getaway vehicle became stuck in a dirt field next to the location they just burglarized.

Palmdale deputies responded to the 2200 Block of West Avenue N-8, in the City of Palmdale when a resident claimed two suspects were stealing items from his work shed. The victim was walking his dog when he noticed a U-Haul truck stuck in the dirt in a vacant lot that backed up to his property. The two suspects approached the victim and asked if he would help them get their vehicle out of the hole they had dug and get them on their way. It was then that the victim noticed his chain link fence had been cut, and several of his items were in the back of the suspect’s U-Haul truck.

The victim quickly returned to his home, notified authorities, and began taking photos of the suspects throwing some of his belonging out of the truck and into the bushes. When deputies arrived they detained both suspects and observed the back of the U-Haul truck was full of items taken from a work shed on the victim’s property.

Both suspects claimed they were looking for a friend’s house when they wandered onto an overgrown lot, and got their vehicle stuck while trying to turn around. They also claimed that the items in their truck were from an estate sale in the Orange County area. What they could not explain was how the hole in the victim’s fence (which was mere feet from the stranded truck) occurred, or why the property they had in the back of the vehicle was the same as the property that was missing from the victim’s work shed. The items that were taken from the shed included tools, sports memorabilia, and electronics.

Both Tehachapi men were transported and booked at the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station on charges of Burglary, Grand Theft, and Receiving Stolen Property. Gallardo is currently being held on $50,000 bail, while Rakisits is currently being held on $200,000 bail due to an outstanding arrest warrant stemming from a DUI case.

Both suspects were arraigned on 11-8-11 at the Antelope Valley Courthouse.
