UPDATE (Feb. 28, 2020): The two suspects involved in the burglary have been arrested, according to police.

The Bakersfield Police Department said that early this morning, officers arrested 39-year-old Benjamin Martinez and 25-year-old Alex Fallias at a motel in the 2600 block of Buck Owens Boulevard. Martinez was found to have four outstanding felony arrest warrants, three of which were also for burglary, the department said.

Martinez and Fallias were arrested and booked into the Kern County Jail on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy.

“The Bakersfield Police Department would like to express their appreciation to the community for their assistance in identifying and locating the suspects involved in this investigation,” the department said.

The Bakersfield Police Department is looking for two suspects wanted for a business burglary last month.

The department said the burglary occurred on Jan. 19 at a business complex located at 2000 Oak Street. The suspects were caught on video surveillance entering a business and removing several items. 

One of the suspects is described as a Hispanic man in his 30’s, medium build with a beard. He was seen wearing a black Adidas baseball cap with a white logo, a grey shirt, a dark-colored jack and blue jeans.

The second suspect is a white or Hispanic woman in her 20s, slim build, with light brown hair. She was wearing a gray jacket, blue jeans, red shoes, a beige scarf and sunglasses. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of these suspects are encouraged to call BPD at 661-327-7111.
