Three burglary suspects arrested near an Irvine business complex were charged Thursday with several felonies.

Rachel Alexandra Fiore, Patrick Vincent Sanders and Michael Douglas Fairfax were arrested Tuesday night after a pair of janitors spotted a burglary in the business complex where they were working, Farrah Emami of the Irvine Police Department said.

The custodians spotted a suspect about 11 p.m. taking a computer from an office, Emami said. They followed the suspect and called police, and with their detailed descriptions officers tracked down Fairfax hiding in some bushes, Emami said.

Sanders and Fiore were waiting nearby in a vehicle, she said.

Emami did not have a cost estimate for the computer taken from the business. Documents also were stolen from the business, she added.

Police found documents with personal identifying information, such as credit card numbers, in the vehicle Sanders and Fiore were in, Emami alleged.

Sanders and Fairfax pleaded not guilty at their arraignment today. It wasn’t immediately clear if Fiore had been arraigned, according to court records.

Fiore was charged with one count of unauthorized use of personal identifying information, a count of acquiring access cards using different names, acquiring an access card without consent, and fraudulently acquiring personal identifying information of 10 or more people, all felonies, according to court records.

Sanders was charged with the same felonies, plus felony counts of second- degree burglary, false personation of another to post bail and fraudulent use of an access card.

Fairfax was charged with second-degree burglary, two counts of unauthorized use of personal identifying information, acquiring access cards using different names, acquiring access cards without consent and fraudulently acquiring personal identifying information of 10 or more people, all felonies.

Fairfax was associated with charity golf tournaments, including the Krank It Hole charity, Emami said. Sanders apparently worked as a financial planner and Fiore appears to have had a job in medical billing, Emami said.
