Laguna Beach Burglary Suspect Arrested Again in Same Neighborhood

Cameron Bilbrey, 18, of Laguna Beach, was arrested Saturday night in the same Laguna Niguel neighborhood where he was arrested just a couple of weeks ago.

An 18-year-old Laguna Beach man was arrested again Saturday night in the same Laguna Niguel neighborhood where he had previously been arrested and charged with burglary just two weeks earlier.

Cameron D. Bilbrey was taken into custody after Orange County Sheriff's deputies responded to a burglary call in the 24000 block of Rue De Cezanne in Laguna Niguel. A woman said she had seen a man entering a home, and from her description, they concluded it was Bilbrey. He was soon arrested, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Bilbrey was first arrested early on Oct. 18 after allegedly sneaking into four Laguna Niguel homes on the same street (but a different block) and stealing jewelry, purses and electronics while the occupants slept.

Bilbrey was charged in connection with those alleged burglaries, as well as the attempted burglaries of two other Rue De Cezanne homes.

OK, so where is the criminal now? Is he out on bail again to do it again as soon as he can get back to Laguna Niguel? Stupid jerk

Ok, this guy's a bigger loser than I originally thought! Anyone want to defend him now?!

Probably trying to feed a drug habit. That's when a sense of right and wrong go right out the window.

As sad as it is to say this, this is my brother. Someone I never pictured this way. What happened? The above comment may be true cause this is not the Cameron I know and love.

Audrey, I completely sympathize because we have the same issue in our family. When a person gets going with drugs, the drugs take over. But he can win that battle and find himself again. Pat Moore Rehab in Costa Mesa was a godsend to our family and there are many others. He does have to be ready though. Alanon has been such a help to me! Keep the faith!!! OXOX

I want to share this site that I found helpful. It has a lot of answers and the woman who manages the company talked to me personally. She was very compassionate and wise. When I didn't have the money for drug tests, she GAVE me some! http://www.drugtestyourteen.com/

I feel terrible for you, Audrey. Sometimes people have to hit rock bottom before they turn things around & lead a great life. I am pissed off because my mother has been burglarized & she felt so violated. It isn't about the material possessions, it's about not feeling safe in your own home, your sanctuary.

He can get clean with meetings, rehabs can be just one more way to stall and coddle the unchanging...IF HE EVEN HAS A DRUG ADDICTION AT ALL. For now he is just a criminal who doesnt care if he gets caught or else isnt very good at hiding after burglary is committed. Either way this is his problem to deal with not ours. No More Bail outs Please, nationally or locally

True about the meetings and true, rehabs can be a revolving door but a good one will at least get the addict sober long enough to give him the facts and get his head on straight for a time. He does have to be the one to want help. Families need information and if they all get help, they may be able to straighten things out sooner rather than later. It is a disease. The thing is, if he goes to jail, society is still having to put out money and right now the jails are full of drug offenders who just keep going back. Unfortunately, it is a societal problem and I think its getting worse. We need to think of some creative solutions. Maybe some sort of prevention tack would be the less costly route. Information is a big plus. I'm glad the High School had the meeting about this problem recently.

This guy is a true 'street urchin' . Feeds off other people in the community. Will never accept responsibility for his actions. Will blame others, family, friends, drugs and anyone else he can blame to slide responsibility. "I plead not guilty because I don't remember". Explains why he did it again. How would he feel if this happened to one of his family members.? Oh wait, it did!!!
