Third Gilroy Murder Suspect Arrested

GILROY (BCN) — Officers have arrested a third suspect in connection with the Feb. 16 murder of a 56-year-old man in Gilroy, police announced Thursday.

Officers obtained and served an arrest warrant for 20-year-old Gerardo Cisneros, who was already in custody in Alameda County on an unrelated charge, police said. Cisneros, Gabriela Bernice, 19, and Rodrigo Bejarno, 22, all of San Jose, have been arrested in connection with the Feb. 16 murder of Robert Joseph Heiser, 56, of Gilroy, police said.

A fourth suspect, identified as Isabella Chaidez, 17, of San Jose, is still wanted in connection with the murder, police said.
Police responded on Feb. 16 on at 2:59 a.m. to a residence in the 1400 block of Bay Tree Drive after a neighbor reported hearing dogs barking near Heiser’s home.

Responding officers entered the home and found Heiser lying unconscious inside. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Bernice and Bejarno were taken into custody following the death after investigators said surveillance video showed the suspects entering a convenience store and purchasing items with Heiser’s credit card.
