On December 6, 2013 at about 2:47 pm, Kern County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a home in the 100 block of McKelvey Avenue in Oildale regarding a possible burglary in progress. The homeowner was inside her residence when she heard glass break to the front of her residence. As she approached her front door, she saw the glass to her front door was broken out and an unknown adult male, later identified as Marcus Gray 21 years old, running away. The alarm to the residence was activated. As the homeowner went to another room, Gray re-entered the residence and told the homeowner to deactivate the alarm. When the homeowner refused, Gray assaulted her and fled the residence. The homeowner sustained minor injuries. Deputies located Gray about one block away at the corner of Merle Haggard Drive and North Chester Avenue. Gray was taken into custody without incident. As a result of the investigation, Gray was booked into the Central Receiving Facility for robbery, burglary, battery, and intimidating a victim. His bail has been set at $205,000.


A new arrest Saturday night in connection with a home invasion that happened on Spring Mill Road on October 24h.

Metro police arrested 21-year-old Demetre Brown at his east side home on North Audubon Road.

He’s one of four men accused of kicking-in the door to a couple’s home tying them up and stealing televisions, gaming systems, cash, jewelry, and a car.

While police aren’t linking Brown’s arrest to another home invasion last week off East 79th Street. They do believe two men in custody for that crime also played a role in the Spring Mill attack.

Eyewitness News Reporter Carrie Cline dug into the suspects’ past and found a long history of crime and violence.

Police say the home invasion at a North side home near 79th and College last week was one of the most violent they’ve seen in years. According to detectives, four to five men broke into the home Tuesday morning and terrorized a husband and wife in their 50’s and their 22-year-old daughter.

According to the report, the armed men stole cash, keys and cars-shot the mother in the leg and sexually assaulted both women.

Alexander Dupree was the first to be arrested. He’s 23 with a wrap sheet stemming back to 2005 when he was involved in a school fight at North Central High School, he was 15. From there, drinking and driving, robbery, gun possession, drug possession and domestic violence arrests followed before the latest arrest last week preliminarily charging him with several things including rape, robbery and criminal confinement.

Michael Pugh was arrested with Dupree for illegal gun possession at the time of the arrest but police have not connected him to the case.

Then, there’s Trae Spells. The youngest of the group at 18, he has the shortest record. He was arrested for child molestation in 2010.

We spoke to his grandmother, who’s helped raise him since he was three after his father was murdered. She was overcome with emotion about what her grandson was accused of.

“I went through a battleship raising him making sure knowing since his father wasn’t here that he was always loved and that his father loved him as well. I can only imagine the fear that these people went through–oh Jesus!,” she said.

It’s a haunting case for all involved and police believe there are more suspects out there and encourage them to turn themselves in immediately.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about any of the recent home invasions in our area to come forward.

Person Of Interest In New London Home Invasion Arrested In Middletown

Middletown police arrested Deahanna Nobleza of Oakdale on drug charges but New London police believe she may also be connected to an assault and robbery that happened in the city on October 7.

Posted by Jayne Keedle (Editor) , October 09, 2013 at 11:17 AM

Middletown police arrested an Oakdale woman on serious drug charges after they said they discovered 5.6 grams of heroin in her purse. But the circumstances that led police to arrest 27-year-old Deahanna Nobleza are considerably more severe.

According to a police report, Middletown officers got a call from the New London Police Department on Oct. 7 following a report of a serious home invasion, robbery and assault that took place in that city the previous night. New London police said a victim had been bound during the home invasion and sustained serious injuries, including a fractured back and multiple lacerations after he was cut with a knife, the arrest report said.

During the course of the investigation, New London police had come to believe Nobleza was a person of interest in the case. Investigators then learned she had rented a 2013 Toyota Corolla from an Enterprise Rent-A-Car in New London with an unidentified person from Middletown who they also said is a “person of interest” in the New London robbery.

Police then said the Corolla was slated to be returned to a Middletown Enterprise facility around 5 p.m. on Oct. 7. New London police had tracked Nobleza’s cell phone and it showed she was en route to Middletown.

Nobleza and the other person of interest arrived at the Middletown Enterprise around 1:35 p.m. and police responded and detained them. During the investigation police seized the 5.6 grams of heroin from Nobleza’s purse, which police said could roughly convert into 280-420 bags of heroin.

Police also seized a total of $767 from the Middletown person of interest’s wallet, which Nobleza later claimed was hers. She told police the heroin was for personal use, however the officers said the amount far outweighed that of a normal heroin user and was indicative that she was directly involved in the sale of the drug, the police report stated.

The cash seized was also determined to be proceeds from the drug sales, police said.

Nobleza was charged with possession of heroin and a possession of heroin with intent to sell. She was held on a $75,000 surety bond and was due in Middlesex Superior Court on Oct. 8.

Police did not state what happened with the Middletown person of interest mentioned in the report, however it appears the investigation is ongoing. It’s also unclear the extent of Nobleza’s involvement in the New London investigation.

 Boyle County Man Arrested After Attacking Teens In Home Invasion

A Boyle County man faces charges after police say he attacked a 15-year-old and 12-year-old girl during a home invasion.

Deputies say two children were home alone Monday on Phillips Lane when a man came to their door saying he would stab them if they didn’t open up.

John William Hall was arrested and charged with burglary and assault.

They say he forced his way in and threw a rock and one of the children inside.

Neighbors say Hall is related to the homeowner and that he’d been staying with them when the kids locked him out.

Police have confirmed Hall is the uncle, but neighbors who live up and down the street tell a different story and say this isn’t the first time there’s been a domestic issue involving the whole family.

Hall was taken to jail and deputies believe he may have been under the influence of narcotics at the time.
