Sears burglary suspect arrested

A brazen burglary at the Sears Home Store in Oakhurst last week, ended with two arrests and the recovery of two stolen vehicles.

Keith Lundy Stump, 22, of Oakhurst (on active probation out of Fresno County), and 21-year-old Cherise Agueros, of Ahwahnee, were arrested last week in Ahwahnee, after a CHP Officer saw the pair ditch a Honda (reported stolen out of Fresno) on Road 600 near Highway 49. It is the same Honda allegedly used in the Sears burglary.

Authorities caught up with the duo at a home on Dillon Drive, where they recovered yet another vehicle – 1992 GMC flatbed truck -- reported stolen just that morning in Oakhurst.

Inside the truck, deputies recovered most (not all) of the tools stolen from Sears last week. The only item reportedly recovered from the stolen Honda, was a debit card that belongs to Agueros.

Stump, who’s accused of stealing more than $500 worth of tools from Sears, remains jailed on suspicion of receiving known stolen property. His bail set at $10,000.

Agueros, who was booked on suspicion of vehicle theft and receiving known stolen property, sits behind bars with bail set at $25,000.

The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information about the Sears burglary is asked to call the Madera County Sheriff’s Office at 559-675-7770 or CRIME STOPPERS at 498-STOP.
