Police Nab Teenage Burglary Suspects from Fremont, Newark

Billy Nguyen, 19, Linh Nguyen, 18, and Thong Hoang, 18, were booked for attempted burglary and other charges on Friday.

In the car that three teenagers used to get around Milpitas, police said they found a loaded gun that had been reported missing from a residential burglary in Hayward.  

Newark resident Thong Hoang, 18, and Fremont residents Billy Nguyen, 19, and his brother, Linh Nguyen, 18, approached four houses on Friday, according to a police press release.

The first house was in a development near the Beresford Square Shopping Center. A resident was inside when the suspects approached shortly before noon, according to police. One teen knocked on the door of a house on Meadowland Drive, and when there was no answer, another began looking at the house and the windows. The resident called the police, and the suspects took off in a black Acura Sedan.

Minutes later, the suspects crossed over to a neighborhood east of North Milpitas Boulevard. They knocked on a door of a house on Aaron Park Drive and asked for a person who did not live there. The resident reported their descriptions to the police.

Later, police connected the teens to a residential burglary alarm on Santa Rita Drive that officers responded to at 12:08 p.m. Ultimately, an officer who spotted the car parked on Tramway Drive witnessed a teen approaching a house and detained all three.

The teens were booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on multiple charges, including attempted burglary, possessing stolen property, possessing a loaded weapon, prowling and conspiracy.

There is an outstanding arrest warrant for Linh Nguyen from previous charges. He was also charged with giving false information to a police officer and driving without a license.
