Two men plead no contest in Yolo County burglary spree

Two men have pleaded no contest to carrying out a burglary spree in Yolo County over a two-month period.

Louis Scott Campos, 26, of Winters, and Love Davis III of Woodland pleaded no contest Tuesday to six residential burglaries and two additional felonies, vehicle theft and burglary of a trailer, according to a Yolo County District Attorney’s Office news release. They also admitted to allegations that they burglarized three residences while the victims were inside the homes.

The burglaries were committed between Dec. 23, 2014, and Jan. 17, 2015, in the cities of Winters and Woodland, and in rural areas of Yolo County. Authorities said the spree began when the first victim, Campos’ neighbor, asked him to watch the house while the family was on vacation. Campos and Davis broke into many homes, garages and outbuildings, stealing a variety of items, including vehicles, ATVs, trailers, electronics and other valuables, authorities said.

They broke into homes in broad daylight, and on three occasions, the residents were home when the break-in occurred. The spree ended when Yolo County sheriff’s deputies apprehended Campos and Davis shortly after they attempted to get away by driving through muddy farmland on stolen ATVs, authorities said.

Yolo Superior Court Judge Steven Mock is scheduled on March 21 to sentence the defendants to eight years and eight months in prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
