Rodriguez, P

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office today announced the arrest of a Clovis man in connection with a hot prowl burglary during which time shots were fired at the suspect. Arrested was 35 year old Paul Anthony Rodriguez.

The incident occurred last Thursday at a residence located in the 500 block of E Ashlan Ave. The victim was home alone when an unknown male subject kicked in the front door. The victim, who had quickly armed himself, confronted the suspect inside the residence. During the confrontation, the victim fired at the suspect and vehicle which was parked in front of the residence. The vehicle, described as a black Dodge Charger, drove away eastbound on Ashlan.

During the subsequent investigation, evidence was recovered at the scene that tied Rodriguez to the burglary.

Rodriguez was taken into custody later that night as he left his residence in the City of Clovis.

Detectives also discovered Rodriguez was responsible for another commercial burglary in the town of Biola.
