Pair take plea deal for robbing ex’s mom with machete
February 06, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Two teenagers accused of breaking into the Redwood City home of one’s ex-girlfriend and demanding jewelry from her mother while brandishing a machete and handgun each pleaded no contest to first-degree residential burglary.

Juan Daniel Ceballos, 19, also admitted special allegations of committing a serious felony and was immediately sentenced to prison for three years. Cristian Joshua Estrada’s sentencing is scheduled for March 6 and he remains held without bail.

Prosecutors say Estrada and the victim’s daughter once dated and had remained friendly.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, July 3, 2013, Estrada allegedly left the Lanyard Drive home with the daughter so Ceballos and another male suspect could break in through the bedroom window. Ceballos allegedly had a machete and the other a handgun when they encountered the mother and asked her repeatedly, “Where’s the gold?”

After removing her jewelry and taking a jewelry box from another room, the teens took the crying woman to the garage and ordered her to open a safe. When her nerves prevented her from doing so, the pair left and, a few minutes later, Estrada and the girl returned. Estrada’s cellphone had messages implicating Ceballos and Ceballos’ home and car reportedly contained the stolen property and machete.

Prosecutors do not believe the daughter was involved.
