Two suspects accused of targeting farmworkers by breaking into their cars, are facing felony charges of burglary and identity theft.

Fresno County Sheriff's deputies caught the suspect, identified as 34-year-old Miguel Colima and 29-year-old Kacie Miller. Detectives said they went through parked cars near grape vineyards, rummaging through unlocked vehicles while the workers were in the fields.

"These people may purposefully prey on field workers thinking they may be too afraid to report. So, we're just encouraging anybody out there that we need to know, your immigration status will not be questioned when you are a victim of a crime," said Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims.

Deputies found the suspects when they used one of the victims' bank cards at a McDonalds.

After serving a warrant, they connected the suspects to a total of five burglaries.
