Police arrest 3 men they say may be linked to string of Park Estates burglaries

Long Beach police officers arrested three men Thursday on suspicion of burglary in Park Estates, the department reported Friday.

Officers were dispatched to the 5600 block of Las Lomas Street just after 4:45 p.m. Thursday, according to department spokeswoman Allison Gallagher. The owners were not home at the time but saw the suspects via their surveillance system, Gallagher said.

Police arrested all three men without incident, and property belonging to the victim was found in their possession, Gallagher said.

East Division officers located one man in a vehicle seen leaving the area and two others at the home, according to Gallagher. The men have been identified as Cristian Ebannur Aballey, 29, Marcelo Ramosmadrid, 27, and Roberto Rojas Solis, 22.

All three men are experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles, Ghallager said.

Aballey was booked on suspicion of residential burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime and resisting/obstructing a public officer. Ramosmadrid and Solis were booked on suspicion of residential burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime. Bail for all three men was set at $200,000, according to Gallagher.

Detectives are working to determine if the men are connected to a string of burglaries in the affluent neighborhood that stretch back to at least June of this year, Gallagher said.
