SMPD Arrests Alleged Peeping Tom, Seek Public Assistance

In the early morning hours of April 25, 2011, a male was looking into a residence window in the 400 block of Sierra Madre Boulevard.  The startled female resident immediately called the police.  Police units arrived in the area within a minute and began checking the area.

A plain-clothes officer located the male in the driveway of an apartment complex a few doors down from the original call.  The victim positively identified Roger Wright, a 37-year-old resident of Sierra Madre, as the person looking in her window.  Wright was arrested for 647 (i) P.C. – Prowling, and booked at the Sierra Madre Jail.   

The Sierra Madre Police Department is currently investigating a number of prowler complaints in this area since December 2010.  Investigators are still reviewing these cases however; they believe that Wright may be involved.  The Sierra Madre Police Department is encouraging any one that may have encountered a person looking in their windows late at night to call Sergeant Joe Ortiz at 626-355-1414.
