The Third Arrest}

Another call from the detective revealed that a third arrest had happened at around 6pm. All of the above information was kept confidential pending the arrest of the third accomplice, Celas’ son, Miguel. He had fled the county days before and was arrested in Mariposa, CA, east of Bakersfield.

To fill everyone in, Isabelle Celas was actually a person that Norma spent a lot of energy and love helping. Most of this woman’s home was furnished by Norma. She would bring her food, and clothing for her family, and Norma’s husband Phil even bought their kids a basketball for Christmas because they had no gifts. Norma trusted and cared for this family and then the mother betrayed her. Her motives are still under investigation, but detectives say there is a solid case being built.
