Three arrested after witnesses in Garden Grove see them committing home burglary


The Garden Grove PD on Friday released the identities of three suspects arrested Thursday on suspicion of committing a residential burglary.

The arrests followed a vehicle and foot pursuit.

The suspects in custody are Malik Xavier Davis, 21, Brittany Ellesse Myvett, 24, and Dasianae Renee Redmond, 18.

The incident unfolded at 11:01 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 22 when GGPD officers responded to a possible burglary in progress in the 6700 block of Stanford Avenue.

Witnesses had reported seeing a dark-colored vehicle in front of the residence and three subjects who did not live there entering the side yard of the house, the GGPD said in a news release.

The car still was in front of the house when officers arrived.

While police set up a perimeter, the suspects came out and fled in the vehicle, according to the news release.

Officers pursued the vehicle onto the westbound Garden Grove Freeway, where Anaheim’s police helicopter, Angel, joined the pursuit.

The vehicle went northbound on the 405 Freeway from the 22 Freeway and then northbound on the 605 Freeway.

The vehicle yielded on the Katella exit from the northbound 605 Freeway.

One suspect, Davis, got out and fled on foot into the residential area and was taken into custody. Myvett and Redmond remained in the car and were taken into custody.

All property stolen from the home in Garden Grove was recovered at the scene, police said Friday in a news release.

In addition to the current charges, Davis has a warrant out for his arrest from a residential burglary that occurred in Garden Grove in 2014, according to the news release.

“These arrests were only made possible by the residents in the area being vigilant for suspicious activity,” the news release said. “Had the citizens not called, we most likely would not have caught these suspects today.”
