TRUCKEE, Calif. — A local man was arrested Friday on suspicion of felony burglary after police say he broke into a home occupied by a woman and her infant child.

According to the Truckee Police Department, the man entered a residence on Estates Drive on Tuesday, Sept. 23, and was confronted by the homeowner, who said she heard someone trying to open an exterior window moments earlier.

Soon after, the male suspect — later determined to be Angel Ivan Torres-Sanchez, 23, of Truckee — fled the house on foot. Responding officers were unable to locate him, according to police.

Neither the woman or her baby, the two people inside at the time, were hurt.

“Based on information developed during the investigation, an arrest warrant was issued (for Torres-Sanchez),” police said in a news release.

On Friday, officers located Torres-Sanchez “at an associate’s residence,” according to police, and arrested him without incident.

“During a search … officers located additional stolen property consisting of numerous prescription pills…” police said. “Further investigation revealed these items were taken in (a) different residential burglary weeks prior.”

Torres-Sanchez was booked Friday into Nevada County Jail on suspicion of felony burglary, as well as misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance and recovery of stolen property. His bail was set at $100,000.
