Alaskan duo nabbed for California burglary spree—deputies linked them to a heist in Loma Linda through surveillance footage. According to a press release from the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner's Department, Nicholas Galante, 37, and Haley Maybrier, 34, both from Wasilla, Alaska, were confronted by the law at a San Bernardino hotel on May 6, following their identification as suspects in a residential burglary.

The crime occurred on April 29 on Starr Street, where the unnamed victim had video evidence of the break-in leading deputies to the identification of the suspects, Galante and Maybrier with the victim's stuff eventually discovered in a hotel room and vehicles linked to the suspects, they're now facing charges, sitting in jail on $75,000 and $60,000 bail respectively. Information on the case is scant but those with any tips are being encouraged to come forward and contact Central Station or to remain anonymous, reach out to the We-tip Hotline or offer clues on their website.

"Deputies wrote a search warrant for a hotel room and two vehicles associated to Galante and Maybrier," stated the press release, detailing the moments before the recovery of the stolen property and the subsequent arrests for burglary as per Penal Code 459. The Central Station's Multiple Enforcement Team (MET) played a significant role in apprehending the suspects.

Any individuals possessing knowledge about this event are encouraged to make contact with Central Station at (909) 387-3545, and in the case for those desiring anonymity, potential informants have the option of calling the We-tip Hotline, or perhaps leaving the critical information on the We-Tip website; Sheriff Shannon D.
