subjects just fled a closed business in the 2900 block of Theresa Drive. Deputies from the

Thousand Oaks Police Department responded and found the Merry Hall Tree Thrift Shop had

been burglarized. Patrol deputies conducted the initial on-scene investigation and obtained

surveillance video. The surveillance video captured the burglary and provided clear images of

both subjects who appeared to be twins.

of Thousand Oaks and a 16 year old male juvenile also of Thousand Oaks. When investigators

tried to contact the group, all four fled on foot. Investigators quickly captured the four subjects

and detained them. Ian and Evan Fralix were arrested for Commercial Burglary. Ryan Doran

and the male juvenile were found to have active warrants and also arrested. .

The three adults were booked into the Ventura County Jail and the juvenile was lodged into

Juvenile Hall. Both Ian and Evan Fralix remain in custody awaiting trial.
