— A second Ceres man was arrested in connection with a commercial burglary at Burns Truck and Trailer in Ripon earlier this week.

Robert William Hendy, 27, of Ceres was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on Thursday on suspicion of commercial burglary.

Hendy and Tony Arreola, 34, are suspected of breaking into several storage areas in the business and stealing truck parts, including aluminum rims, electronic control modules and engine parts, valued at about $11,000, according to Ripon Police Department spokesman Sgt. Steve Merchant.
