HUNTINGTON BEACH...Last week a man was seen breaking into the mailboxes at The Residences apartment complex at 7521 Edinger Ave. Through an anonymous tip, Huntington Beach detectives were able to develop information regarding a possible suspect.

Derrick Trent


On February 17, 2017, Detectives obtained a search warrant for Derrick Trent, his residence he was staying at in Santa Ana and his vehicles. The search warrant was served without incident and items reported stolen during the burglaries were seized. Trent was arrested for burglary and possession of burglary tools and booked into the HBPD jail.

There is a possibility there may be more victims who have not yet reported their mail stolen or who may realize in the future they are missing mail or a package. Photo:HBPD
