27-year-old Mackenzie Clay was jailed on February 26th after a home invasion on Mimosa Drive the night prior. Raquel Flores-Guillen stated that she heard someone enter her home from the basement door while she was upstairs. She then called out to them and grabbed a gun to defend herself. Her husband, Mr. Villalobos, quickly jumped out of the shower, took possession of the gun, and asked the intruder why he was inside their home. The intruder stated that he wanted to give them mail and proceeded to come up the basement steps. Mr. Villalobos fired a warning shot down the stairs. The intruder began to run away, and that’s when Mr. Villalobos noticed it was their next-door neighbor who had broken in. Mr. Villalobos told officers that two children were in the house when the incident occurred. Officers found the spare key and footprints leading up the steps of the basement and went next door to speak with Clay. He stated that he heard a beep from next door and entered the home to see what was going on. When officers advised Clay that he was under arrest, he tensed up his body and began to resist. Officers had to carry Clay to the patrol vehicle due to him refusing to walk. While Clay was in the backseat, he spat several times. When the patrol vehicle arrived at booking, Clay refused to exit the vehicle and stated that he would have to be dragged out because he was too tired. Officers then pulled him out of the vehicle and carried him into booking.
