Two men are in custody today (January 27) after being caught in the act of burglarizing a San Marcos church in the early morning hours.
Daniel Arango and his newphew Luis Arango were seen forcing their way through the front door of the Apostolic Assembly of the Faith on the 200 block of Smilax Road at around 12:30 a.m. by a witness, who alerted authorities.
San Diego sheriff's deputies arrived and established a perimeter around the building while the Arangos were still inside. When the suspects attempted to flee out a back door, they were immediately confronted, according to a report from Lt. Jason Vickery.
Both men were uncooperative, and the elder Arango was tasered by deputies before he submitted to being handcuffed. The pair were found to be in possession of cash and property stolen from the building at the time of their arrest and face charges of conspiracy, commercial burglary, and resisting arrest.
