Key evidence collected at the scene, including Soto’s cell phone led to the arrest. With the assistance of SAPD technology team and the United States Secret Service they were able to obtain enough information to find a possible location for the suspect’s vehicle seen on surveillance video camera footage released last week.   

That information was then provided to their detectives, who were able to locate the vehicle and following further surveillance of the vehicle, able to locate the house of the suspects, according to SAPD.
