On 05/09/16 at approximately 1153 hours, Deputies from the Pixley Substation responded to a trailer located on the 800 block of North Front Street, in Earlimart, regarding a residential burglary in progress.  Upon arrival, Deputies located a truck parked adjacent to an open window and a female subject was observed inside the residence through a window.  Deputies knocked on the trailer for several minutes with no response. 

A Deputy on scene recognized the vehicle and called for the subject by name to exit the trailer.  After several minutes the suspect opened the front door to the trailer.  The trailer was searched for additional suspects but none were found.  During the investigation, it was determined the suspect did not have permission to be in the trailer and she had forced entry into the trailer.


Suspect in custody: Bernice Wlison (48 yrs old) from Allensworth.
