Atwater PD arrest man after he attempted to break-in home

Atwater Police arrested 27 year old Jorge Dominguez on Saturday April 8th, 2017 after he forced open a rear door to a residence in the 1400 block of Drakeley Avenue. Dominguez told a neighbor who witnessed the break-in that he was only going to take a shower at the home. The forced entry triggered a burglar alarm activation and police were summoned to the home. They located Dominguez in the backyard of a home one street to the north of the location of the break-in where he was placed under arrest. Dominguez has had numerous run-ins with law enforcement over the years with over a few dozen arrests. He was later booked into Merced County Jail.
