Police Nab Main Avenue Rooftop Burglar

On Saturday, January 14, 2017, at 0629 hours Twin Falls Police Department Officers responded to the Orpheum Theatre, 146 Main Ave. N., for an alarm call. Officers arrived and could hear someone inside the building. A perimeter was set up around the 100 block of Main Ave. N. Officers entered the building and learned that a male subject was fleeing on the rooftops of the 100 block of Main Ave. N. Officers began searching the roof and found, Michael Eguilior, trying to hide behind an air conditioner unit. Eguilor was detained. Multiple businesses were searched in the 100 block of Main Ave. N. for any additional suspects. Twin Falls Police utilized their K9 and aerial assets from the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s office in the search of any suspects. No additional suspects are believed to be involved.

During the investigations officers found multiple items, which were believed to be stolen, inside of a backpack that had been abandoned. Those items belonged to multiple vendors at the Bridal Show being hosted at Radio Rendezvous, 241 Main Ave. W. Officers were able to recover over $1000.00 in stolen items and return them to the vendors.

Eguilor was arrested and booked for burglary, attempted burglary, grand theft by possession and possession of methamphetamine. We appreciate the assistance of the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s office and the Twin Falls Fire Department who assisted on the call and the assistance of Idaho State Police who took several calls in the city while Twin Falls Police Officers were busy in the apprehension of Eguilor.
