Forced entry thwarted in Carlsbad

Neighbors help track perp

A would-be burglar didn't get away as homeowners in the established 260-unit condo complex of Carlsbad Crest helped police track down the suspect.
A would-be burglar didn't get away as homeowners in the established 260-unit condo complex of Carlsbad Crest helped police track down the suspect.

An 80-minute search for a man who tried to force his way into a Carlsbad home on the 800 block of Ginger Avenue ended with his arrest on February 25.

The search began around 5 p.m., after Carlsbad police received calls about a suspicious male who was seen forcing entry into a residence, according to police. Witnesses said they then saw the man exit the back of the dwelling and leave on foot.

At least two San Diego County Sheriff’s Department helicopters aided the search as they circled over ocean-view condos, homes, and Pacific Rim Elementary School. The school was quickly put on lockdown for the dozen or so kids and adults who were still on campus at an onsite daycare.

Less than a mile away, aided by tips from residents, police used a canine to search yards on Briarwood Drive. A little after 6 p.m, the dog "alerted" to an unsecured side-door to someone's garage, where the suspect was found hiding.

Jodee Sasway, spokesperson for the Carlsbad Police Department, identified the suspect as Joshua Bishop, 24. Sasway said Bishop’s arrest was attributed to “good witness information and people pointing us in the right direction.”

Sasway said a second subject is a "person of interest": police are trying to locate a 23-year-old female with a Vista address.
