Patrick Kasper, 22

Property Crimes detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office have booked a man and his girlfriend into the Fresno County Jail. Patrick Kasper, 22, of Fresno faces felony charges of burglary, drug possession, possession of a loaded gun and probation violation. Dianna Henson, 20, of Fresno faces felony charges of burglary and probation violation. Both have extensive criminal histories.

Tuesday afternoon, a FSO detective saw Kasper and Henson walking near Highway 99 and Olive Ave. The detective stopped to talk with both of them because they were wanted felons. Kasper was found to have a loaded gun and a key to a room at a motel located on the 1400 block of N. Golden State Blvd. Detectives searched the room and recovered several items which were stolen during different burglaries at homes in north Fresno.

A break in this case came early in the day on Tuesday. A deputy located an SUV parked near the intersection of Palm and Santa Fe Avenues. The SUV matched the description of the vehicle used during a January 7th burglary at a home near Gettysburg and Del Mar Avenues. In that case, $4,000 worth of jewelry and electronics were stolen. People matching the descriptions of Kasper and Henson were seen near the home at that time. Detectives determined the person inside the vehicle on Tuesday was not one of their burglary suspects, however, they learned that Kasper and Henson frequently borrow the SUV to get around.

As an interesting side note, detectives found Tangelos, a unique citrus fruit, inside the SUV. It just so happens, the suspects left Tangelo peels on the floor of one of the rooms of the house burglarized on January 7th.

This is an ongoing investigation. Detectives are checking to see if Kasper and Henson may be responsible for several other reported burglaries in Fresno County. They are also working to return the property recovered at the motel to its rightful owners.

Anyone with additional information on Kasper or Henson should call the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center at (559) 600-3111 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP (7687). You will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
