FRESNO COUNTY, California (KSEE/KGPE) – Two people are facing felony charges stemming from a home invasion at the beginning of the month, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives arrested Jarrel Garrett, 25, and Radaeja Howlin, 21, both from Fresno, after a home invasion that allegedly happened Oct. 3.
They are facing one felony each and are at Fresno County Jail. Garrett has a $240K bond, and Howlin’s is $80K.
At around midnight, a woman called 911 saying her home in the 300 block of West San Ramon Avenue was being burglarized.
When deputies arrived, Garrett and Howlin were allegedly seen in the home, attempting to flee through the back door.
Howlin was immediately caught, and Garrett was caught after reportedly jumping a fence and falling into a swimming pool.
The sheriff’s office released video of him getting out of the pool after the fall.
