WILDWOOD – Police said they charged three after a homeowner alerted them to a burglary after seeing the crime unfold on video surveillance.
Police responded the night of Dec. 12 to the 100 block of East Garfield Avenue but the crime was no longer in progress, according to a Wildwood Police release. 
After reviewing the surveillance video, police said they got a physical description of the suspects as well as a description of their clothing. A follow-up investigation included surveillance in areas the suspects were known to frequent, police said. 
Police said they have arrested two of the suspects, Giovanni Alicea-Ocasio, 31, and Kevin Vega-Aguilar, 29, both of whom were living in Wildwood. A third suspect has been identified as Marangeli Medina, 26, who is still at large, according to police.
