Geneva Arocha

On July 27, a suspect broke into mailboxes and stole multiple items at the Burnet Place Apartments, 405 Sloan St. Police later learned the suspect was not alone.

According to police reports, on Aug. 13, at 10:25 p.m. in the 1100 block of N. Main St., Geneva Arocha, 49, of Taylor was arrested for an outstanding warrant.

Police Commander Joseph Branson said Arocha became involved with the case when officers learned the car at the scene matched the description of a car she had been loaned.

On July 27, officers responded to a call for a burglary at the Burnet Place Apartments. On Aug. 6, officers arrested Robert Padilla, 20, of Taylor, for the burglaries.

"Padilla is Arocha's nephew and she assisted him," Branson said. "Essentially, they worked together to burglarize these mailboxes."

Arocha was charged with burglary of a building, which is a state jail felony. According to jail records, Arocha is still in custody at the Williamson County Jail on a $75,000 bond.

Padilla was also arrested for burglary of building after a surveillance video shows a suspect breaking into Trade Up, which officers believe was Padilla. Branson said Arocha was not involved with that crime.
