Residential burglary arrest
Tehachapi Police Department
October 12, 2019
On Oct. 1 at approximately 7 a.m., a resident in the 1200 block of Clasico Drive in the City of Tehachapi started their vehicle which was parked in the driveway. Due to the colder weather, the resident went inside the home to allow the vehicle to warm up. The resident returned to the vehicle approximately 10 minutes later and found that the center console to the vehicle had been opened and their garage door was now open. The resident realized someone had opened and entered their attached garage and stolen several items, including a large screen television.
During the investigation of the burglary, officers received information indicating the stolen property was possibly located at a residence in the 200 block of West Valley Blvd. Officers responded to the residence where they located all the property which had been stolen from the garage.
Cody Robert Hisaw, 33, of Tehachapi was detained at the location and confessed to committing the burglary. He was arrested at the location and transported to Kern County Jail where he was booked for burglary.
As overnight temperatures begin to drop, the Tehachapi Police Department would like to remind residents of the dangers of leaving your car running and unattended. If you feel it is necessary to warm your car, utilize the remote start feature if your vehicle is equipped and make certain the doors remain locked. We see an increase in vehicle thefts during this time of year and most of those thefts are the result of the keys being left in running and unattended vehicles.
