Two men named Jesus were arrested on Friday for stealing presents from families in Newark, California on Christmas Eve.

Police officers arrested Jesus Jimenez, 18; Jesus Jimenez, 18; Gurinder Singh, 18; and Victor Castro, 24 at about 7 p.m. on December 27 for stealing presents from three homes. At least one family awoke on Christmas Day to a barren tree, according to Newark Police. 

Newark Police Officer Jeff Revay said the men stole presents that contained electronics, Coach handbags, and jewelry worth about $3,000. They tried to pawn the jewelry, according to Revay, which led to their apprehension. Authorities were alerted. Video surveillance footage was handed over. 

What detectives saw on the video surveillance footage gave them enough evidence to get three search warrants. Officers were deployed and arrested the men at about 7 p.m. on Friday. During the search, police officers say they found a revolver, a semiautomatic handgun, and narcotics in the homes.  

“It wasn’t all my work,” said Officer Revay. “It was a team effort,” Revay said.  

Two minors were also taken into custody in connection to the heists and are also being charged with burglary and possession of stolen property. The men await their day in court.

The truth about religions is that many people do twist the words to fit their own agenda. Sometimes it does come out as hate and name-calling. Please read the bible yourself though, and you will see that Jesus teaches love, non-violence, non-judgmental ways, and true repentance. Someone above talked about criminals who hide behind forgiveness...true repentance means to not sin again. You can't hide from God. If you say you believe but do not change your ways, you will have to face judgment by God himself. God does not give signs to us, so you need to have faith to see Him. I have seen many things that I can point to as concrete proof for me, but without faith I would not have seen them.

Diane you're as sick as any human being I've ever had the displeasure of being acquainted with in my entire life. Your judgmental & hateful diatribes are as despicable as you are & it's obvious that no one else commenting here shares your reprehensible viewpoint of their. Why are you so obsessed with gay sex ? Is it because you're so vile that men would rather copulate with each other than with you ? Do you kiss your mother with that filthy mouth of yours ? Your eyes must be brown because you're so full of excrement & hate for your fellow man that even Jesus himself (if he ever actually existed) would disavow every repugnant word you utter. This is why Americans are abandoning the church & the Republican (Repugnant) Party in droves further marginalizing religious crackpots like you. You're undoubtedly the poster child for ill-conceived anger,stupidity & intolerance & you're proof positive of every point I've made. You disgust me & you insult the intelligence of everybody else. You're a heretic & if you think you can hate your way to heaven (if there were such a place) you're sadly mistaken. The thought of you burning in hell gives me a warm happy feeling all over,but the thought of you going down & getting hot I'm sure pleases many more.
Diane Griego January 08, 2014 at 11:28 AM
The real loving liberal shows its true colors. My my the intolerance of those homosexuals who demand tolerance is of no surprise. Intelligence?? LOL!!! Do not flatter yourself. The world is abandoning God because they are vain, egotistical and selfish immoral and ignorant. And like you the fact of millions being intentionally murdered for fake sex is of no concern since its all in the name of a twisted and stomach turning version of love. Once again the bible called this one as well and is spot on about evil and lovers of self like yourself. I am sorry if you are that incapable of handling truth but denial only hurts society of which the proof and facts only serve to prove me RIGHT! Sorry but all of your hatefilled intolerant rant does is prove me RIGHT, nothing more. You are one very lost, miserable and lonely whatever you are. May God have mercy on your miserable and lonely soul.
Frank Mockery January 08, 2014 at 02:21 PM
So says Diane Griego the furious Queen of fallacious & fetid faith fomented foppery ! Judging by the number of recommends that your bigoted tirades have generated it would certainly appear that you're the lonely & miserable one as no one shares your Bible-based bigotry. Your opinion is just that,your opinion & fortunately it's shared by few & renounced by many. If Heaven was full of haters like you few Christians would want to join you there as you're as delusional as your malevolence is despicable. You can't abandon that which doesn't exist,so you can take your fictional Iron Age best-seller & stick it where the sun don't shine. It couldn't be any darker than your heart & soul you sanctimonious self-righteous simpleton ! There are no Gods & just because you've been duped into believing in mythology doesn't make one iota of difference. I'll take facts over faith anytime,while you'd never consider letting the facts interfere with your faith. You're nothing more than a deplorable deity devotee who needs her knuckles rapped with the Golden Ruler,even the Pope is more tolerant of other's lifestyles than you. You my friend aren't going to Hell,by my estimation you're living in a Hell of your own making now ! God bless your little heart (& narrow mind). LMFAO !!!!!!!
Diane Griego January 09, 2014 at 03:23 PM
Once again you prove the Bible to be factual and accurate. Thank you for confirming its truth. Why is it so easy for liberal loons and atheists to just shrug off truth and facts? No scruples , morals or integrity. Even many scientists believe the Gods truth which is where INTELLIGENT DESIGN came from if you knew anything about actual facts or science. Calling me names to disguise your dark, lonely and miserable soul does nothing but stack my deck for the Royal Flush which is what you are headed for! How anyone claiming to have any twinge of intelligence or integrity to continue to live a life with no purpose is amazingly ignorant to say the least! Which is why those who believe in God give more to help the needy and less fortunate all over the world while liberal lecherous loons and greedy atheists give nothing if there is nothing in it for them, another FACT! So keep the ignorant attacks coming all you do is prove me right but more importantly you prove Gods word to be precise about people like you. Thank you for making this easier and easier. All I do when witnessing to someone about God is come to this site and show them your posts which lines up precisely with scripture and the selfish nature of poor lost souls like you. They make the switch real quick!
James Nelson January 09, 2014 at 08:19 PM
Diane, Please do tell us how you know that God REALLY does exist without quoting the Bible to us? Can you do that without referencing the fictional book and explain how you've arrived at where you have? What's this God done for you, personally?
Summer Hemphill January 09, 2014 at 10:19 PM
Diane doesn't know who wrote the Bible,when it was written or who collects the royalties when they're sold,but she clings to the belief that it supports her hateful & despicable intolerance for her fellow man ! If a man say,I love God,and hateth his brother.he is a liar:for he who loveth not his brother whom he hath seen,how can he love God who he hath not seen ? And this commandment we have from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. 1 John 4:20 - 4:21 It's painfully clear that Diane hasn't even read the Bible & all her so-called biblical knowledge was acquired by watching bigoted money grubbing televangelists or through a process of osmosis. It's just a goddamn good thing that it's St.Peter at the Pearly Gates & not her,otherwise it would be awful lonely up there ! What an ignorant & irksome maroon !!!
Diane Griego January 09, 2014 at 11:53 PM
Hey Humphill, Your intolerant tactics don't work with me whatever you are so stop with the same ole liberal lunatic talking points already all you do is emberass yourself even more then your mirror does. Stating truth does not equal hate although that is the liberal twisted thought process for you. St. Peter? So you went to Catholic school hugh? That explains your self loathing hatred for mankind. Good luck and just some advice, there are plastic surgeons that could possibly help you out so that you could live out the rest of your hopeless and pointless life with some self worth.
Diane Griego January 09, 2014 at 11:54 PM
How I arrived where I am is by conception which was conceived and created by God first of all and its as simple as the air you breath you moron, you can't see it but its there and you couldn't live without it. Do some research and stop making such fools of yourselves.
James Nelson January 10, 2014 at 12:47 AM
Diane, you are one of the most hateful people I've ever met and if this is how "children of god" act while not at the church then I'm glad I am the way I am. You are so brainwashed that I feel sorry for you and not many people get my sympathy. I'm constantly shaking my head while reading your holier than thou drivel.
James Nelson January 10, 2014 at 01:15 AM
For the record, when I was a Youth, I Died, I went BEYOND this life, literally. For whatever reason, I came back. There was no "God" like character floating on fluffy clouds, Pearly White gates or even Visions of those who died before me, it was pitch black. That's how I know there's no Afterlife, and no God. Unlike Diane, I've actually been to this "When your end comes" which she keeps referencing and I am certain that when her end comes that she will be in for a rude awakening. Some Fictional Character didn't bring me back to life, a Doctor in an ER (Actually, he was the Chief of Staff) just happened to be on call that night and here I am. This isn't something that I just throw out there in casual conversation, I rarely bring it up, even to those closest to me. It is the reason why I HATE Hospitals though, they are full of people who believe in a false God and when their time comes are rewarded with nothing for their devotion. It's fucked up and I don't like to dwell on it. I don't care if you believe in God, or the virgin Mary, that's your deal but personally I have been to the end and it's not as cracked up as Diane makes it out to be. While I feel like there's nothing after Life, I am not quick to try and force it down your throat, I've experienced it and to be Honest, don't want to ever again. However someday I will pass on, I won't be coming back as many of us will experience and that's just the way it is. I feel like, lying to myself and trying to make myself feel better by believing in something which frankly is non existent, would be doing a great disservice to me as an Intelligent Human Being. That's my Experience, maybe yours will be better, but don't you dare pretend to know for certain what my outcome will be, when your conversations with your God are only one sided.
Summer Hemphill January 10, 2014 at 03:14 AM
Just for the record Diane I'm not Catholic,didn't attend parochial school & scoff at any kind of faith-based education. Why do you think attending Catholic school "would explain my self-loathing hatred for mankind" ? Aren't you being just a tad judgmental there ? I don't loath mankind or any church or religion (why loath something that doesn't exist ?),I just loath Bible-based bigoted buffoons like you ! Instead of turning the other cheek (a concept apparently lost on you) how about holding still so I can slap some sense into you ? You claim that your brand of Christianity is the only real gateway to Heaven & that everyone else is destined to burn in Hell. SO far you hate Catholics & the Pope,Jews,Muslims,Hindus,Buddists,Sikhs & Homosexuals,Enablers,Liberals,Democrats,Potheads & anybody & everybody who disagrees with you ! That pretty much just leaves nobody but you ! You must do your worshipping in front of your TV because there aren't enough like-minded folks left to hold church services. Please find a clergyman,confide all your hatred you harbor to him & ask him to help you get the psychiatric help you need - YOU'RE INSANE !!!
Summer Hemphill January 10, 2014 at 03:26 AM
Did I quote the Bible & find myself in total agreement with James for a change ? If Diane can achieve one more bona fide miracle she could become a Saint ! Oh yeah,that's right she hates the Saints & the Catholic Church ! Never mind !!!
Diane Griego January 10, 2014 at 07:04 PM
Simple James, you went to hell so of course you didn't see any pearly gates or God. And poor Hemper, I don't hate anybody but I do in fact hate immorality as it has killed millions disguised as twisted liberal love. Another FACT or STAT just came out today that STD's are on the rise and of course the majority of the increase is due to the male on male sex that is murdering millions. How Hemper and Nelson and anyone supporting homosexuality can endorse that is just evil at its core which not only proves Satan and hells existence but once again proves the Bibles accuracy about men becoming lovers of self with no self integrity or decency. You haters need real lives and need to stop defending evil to get your kicks. But you still have a chance to cry out to God, repent and get right, its not to late. We will all continue to pray for you all.
James Nelson January 10, 2014 at 08:18 PM
Diane, That's pretty funny, have you been to Hell? How would you even know? Oh let me guess, the Bible (Fictional Book) told you! It's OK, I've already died and your "God" didn't do shit to me. It's just another example of how sick and twisted you are as a Human Being. It's people like you who end up biting it before people like us non believers (Usually). Tell you what Diane, even though you are the biggest CUNT, yes... the C Word, I feel it's appropriate and warranted here, I have ever encountered lately I'm still going to light a Candle for you tonight. Your Soul may in fact be dark and rife with Hatred, but mine isn't.
James Nelson January 10, 2014 at 08:19 PM
Oh and Summer, wonders never cease eh?
Frank Mockery January 10, 2014 at 10:16 PM
I'm confused,does Diane think that twisted conservative love (the kind practiced by Log Cabin Republicans for example) isn't immoral or does she think that liberals who happen to be homosexuals are immoral or is it homosexuals who happen to be liberal that are immoral or that conservatives are never immoral or that conservatives are also immoral or is it that all homosexuals are immoral ? If AIDS is God's revenge on homosexual men like she says then lesbians (also homosexuals) who have the lowest incidence of AIDS must be God's chosen people ! And what about bi-sexuals,trans-sexuals,transvestites,crossdressers,adulters,furries,animal lovers & necrophiliacs. I'd wager that her corpse is far more likely to be violated by necrophiliacs than for her wretched soul to ascend to Heaven. My guess is that it's likely that Diane has either never had sex or hasn't had sex with another human being for decades. She's more than likely just another bitter,unhappy,unattractive & rejected man hater whose only sexual release is masturbating in a dark room to a artist's rendering of Jesus while visions of fellatio,cunnilingus,felching & sodomy dance in her head. At least I have the integrity & decency to say that my interpretation of her sexual desires is just as accurate as her interpretation of the Bible. Diane would you believe it was Santa Claus (Santa/Satan) who killed Jesus Christ ? I certainly do ! It's ignorant Bible beaters like Diane that are a bigger threat to America,Americans & the freedom that we so cherish than any Islamic terrorist could ever hope to be ! If there's one thing I can't abide it's bigots like Diane who try to use the Bible to justify their ill-conceived & irrational prejudice for those whose lifestyles & thinking differ from their own. God is Great & an Ali Akbar to you too !!!
Anon112 January 10, 2014 at 11:46 PM
Oh, Newark you so crazy....
sjs January 11, 2014 at 03:41 PM
I agree anon112. That's funny. What isn't funny is how people treat each other. Come on folks, really? Where is the respect? Even if someone treats you with disrespect, does that make it right to do it back? Please reread my post from earlier if you think Diane represents those who follow Jesus. Jesus does not teach hate. You can believe in the bible or not, but as an educated man myself, I cannot believe that all living things - plants, animals, humans, micro-organisms - come from the same one cell that developed in a pond. To me, that's the part of evolution no one can prove exists. If I may make a suggestion to those who say the bible is fictional, you may find "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel an interesting read. He too thought the bible was "hokum". He visited scholars and sought to disprove Christianity. It turned out he learned quite a bit
Becky January 11, 2014 at 06:06 PM
Well, I feel sorry for these four young men, because this was their story, and the Trolls just hi-jacked the whole conversation like they always do.
Diane Griego January 11, 2014 at 10:40 PM
Yes Mr.or Ms. Nelson sought to ridicule Christians while fueling his racist and hate toward hispanics and cannot handle when someone puts him or her in its place. I am sick and tired of racist intolerant bigots who deman tolerance for immorality such as the likes of homosexuality. Someone steals presents and is a villian but homosexuals who knowingly have HIV Aids and intentionally screw one another is acceptable? What the heck is wrong with society? And the answer is because there are no more morals, morality is to each his own and as long as it doesn't affect me I won't worry about it. God has been kicked out of schools and government and then we wonder and try to fix something that only God can fix. And Ms. mockery, all immorality is is immoral and sin including log cabin republicans! Take sjs advice and read The Case for Christ, you just may learn something. Don't be afraid, truth is nothing to fear.
James Nelson January 11, 2014 at 11:45 PM
Diane, Who is Racist?, you can't prove that your "God" is REAL so you resort to changing the subject and accusing me of being Racist. LOL. That's funny!
James Nelson January 12, 2014 at 12:06 AM
Allow me to reiterate what is so obvious to the rest of us who don't have our heads up our ass. I shared my Opinion on Religion, DIANE decided that because I shared this Opinion that she was going to Personally Attack me, regardless of the fact I didn't attack her. I STILL haven't attacked her except for my Cunt comment above. As far as this Religion crap goes, I expressed my thoughts on the matter and as I've said time and again I don't care what anyone believes in. For some reason it's a little hard for Diane to follow along and distinguish just what it is that I'm saying. DIANE could have easily expressed her Opinion without Personally Attacking me, and we wouldn't be having this exchange today. My Comments above are unedited, DO re-read them Diane prior to making Accusations which are baseless and untrue.
Diane Griego January 13, 2014 at 06:32 PM
Yes you shared your opinion on an article which had nothing to do with the Bible Jesus Christ to attack religion and hispanics. FACT! And you can't handle being called on your bigotry, intolerance and hatred towards minorities. Get your FACTS straight. Pardon the pun.
James Nelson January 13, 2014 at 08:58 PM
Diane, My last relationship was with a Hispanic woman, so that blows your bigotry accusation out of the water. I also grew up in a Neighborhood with less white people than any other group and some of my closest friends are Hispanic. What it comes down to is your pissed at me for poking fun at some guys name, I'm an Asshole, I've never denied that! However, it was a tongue in cheek comment, you blew it up into something way more. It really is that simple. You wanna talk about Bigotry? Try being a White Boy publicly dating a Hispanic or other Race Female, then come back and tell me about Racism. People are ignorant, they just are. I'm a Smartass, some of my comments are inappropriate, sure. But don't confuse bad Humor with Hating someone just cause of their Race. They aren't even on the same wavelength.
Dan Spencer January 13, 2014 at 09:06 PM
Are we done now....LOL How about the guy on Elm street with two IED's in his backyard? Almost a nightmare on Elm street...
James Nelson January 13, 2014 at 09:10 PM
Dan, good one! :D
Diane Griego January 14, 2014 at 01:50 PM
Sure it was with an hispanic woman, LOL! Anybody can say and be whomever they feel whenever they feel it so your attack on some young foolish hispanic kid names Jesus is not innappropriate but simply racist. So your childhood experiences with minorities explains why you chose to comment and reveal your hatred of minorities and God. article.
James Nelson January 14, 2014 at 07:07 PM
Diane, I think your enjoying all of this Attention we're giving you just a little too much and while I would LOVE to go back and forth trying to Educate your foolish self, I have much better things to accomplish with my time. Be gone,Troll.
Diane Griego January 15, 2014 at 01:55 PM
Well I won't see you in hell so it was fun and Lord knows I tried. You are now fully accountable for your ignorant, hateful and selfish life. Good Luck.
