Hemet Man Allegedly Catches Male And Female Duo Burglarizing His House

SAN JACINTO (CBS) — A San Jacinto resident interrupted a burglary at his home Saturday morning, leading to the arrest of a man and a woman, the sheriff’s department said.

At about 8:30 a.m. this morning, the resident returned to his home in the 300 block of North Warren Road and found a car he did not recognize parked in his driveway, Nardone said.

He confronted a man and woman walking toward the car from his home, and the man headed for the car, leaving the woman behind, Nardone said. The woman ran and hid in a nearby field.

Responding officers followed the vehicle to the 3600 block of West Florida Avenue in Hemet, and after a short foot pursuit, the man was apprehended, Nardone said.

The woman was reportedly found hiding in a trailer park near the victim’s home.

All of the stolen belongings were found recovered,  according to Nardone.

The suspects have been identified as Hemet residents David Dale Cuthbert, 46, and Mary Michelle Gibson, 39.

The duo were arrested for suspicion of residential burglary and booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. Each were being held in lieu of $25,000 bail, jail records show.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close their bad cases.

    I was the “man” who found these 2 burglarizing my Grandma’s home. The woman pled to a deal and the male took this case to trial and was found guilty in less than 15 minutes of a jury deliberation. He will be sentenced on 3/29. The belongings were not all recovered, a lot of the antiques and family heirlooms are still missing and have not been recovered.
    This man, David Dale Cuthbert had the nerve to take this case to trial when I caught him red-handed in my Grandmothers home. She passed away 3 weeks ago and we couldn’t bear to tell her what had happened at her home. She was on hospice care being taken care of by my mother. I look forward to the sentencing in this case.
