Detectives investigating an alleged residential burglary that resulted in the arrest of UCLA receivers coach Eric Scott are trying to locate and interview a 911 caller who reported three men forcing their way inside a Norwalk home where guns and drugs were later found.
The lead detective on the case said Wednesday he expects to present his complete findings to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office by Friday. The district attorney will then decide whether to charge Scott, 32, or two others arrested at the scene.
Sheriff's authorities are investigating whether Scott entered the home, the detective said. Scott "was arrested for the burglary, but what he did to be arrested -- his participation -- I don't know," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Det. Rick Broussard said. "We're not sure he was an active participant."
Arrested with Scott were his cousin Timothy Williams and Jesus DeAlba, who last season was on the New Mexico Highlands University football team.
