Teton County Idaho and Teton County Wyoming deputies make arrest in burglary case
On Thursday, March 14, 2013, Teton County Sheriff's deputies from Wyoming and Idaho arrested 19 year old Juan Castillo- Arellano at his residence in Driggs, Idaho. Castillo-Arellano was wanted on a Wyoming felony warrant for conspiracy to commit auto burglary and auto burglary from an offense that occurred in Teton Canyon, near Alta in October 2012.
Teton Wyoming deputies were led to Castillo-Arellano based on an extensive and vigorous investigation conducted by the Teton County Idaho Sheriff's Office in relation to residential, commercial, and auto burglaries occurring within their jurisdiction. Both agencies are continuing to work together to identify and file charges against multiple other suspects who have conspired since 2011 to commit burglaries in both Idaho and Wyoming.
Castillo-Arellano was transported to the Madison County Jail in Idaho and is awaiting extradition. Castillo-Arellano will likely be facing additional charges upon his arrival in Jackson based on investigation linking him to a residential burglary that occurred in Alta, Wyoming in November 2011.
