On Tuesday, Feb. 9, officers responded to a burglary call at 2:45 a.m. on the 13800 block of Hawthorne Blvd., less than two miles away from the first location, but suspects had fled by the time officers arrived.
At 3:15 a.m. Tuesday, Hawthorne Police officers checked a third mortuary on the 4200 block of Broadway Ave. on "a hunch," KNBC-TV reports, and saw two men with flashlights inside. Jimenez and Dominguez were arrested at the scene.
Police said both men are transient.
"Detectives said they’re still gathering evidence to tie all three break-ins to the same two suspects. They're also looking for a third suspected burglar," KNBC reports.
