Chino Hills- During an investigation of several commercial burglaries at the Lowe’s Home Improvement in Chino Hills, deputies from the Chino Hills Police/Sheriff’s Department identified the suspect as 30-year-old Dominic Adame. On Monday, December 19, 2016, deputies and detectives served warrants at Dominic Adame’s home in the city of Corona. The warrants were in reference to two burglaries which occurred at a Lowe’s home improvement store in Chino Hills, and several other similar burglaries committed in Lowe’s locations throughout Riverside County. A white older model Toyota Avalon was used during the burglaries. Adame would enter the Lowe’s locations, select combo tool kits, then exit without paying for the merchandise.
During the service of the warrants, deputies recovered stolen tools and several items consistent with a Methamphetamine Clandestine Lab. Adame and his girlfriend, Amber Buasen, were arrested and booked into custody in Riverside County for manufacturing and possession of narcotics for sales. During the investigation, it was determined Buasen conspired with Adame to commit burglaries at Lowe’s locations in San Bernardino and Riverside County.
