Another Burglary Attempt, One Suspect In Custody, One Still At Large

Press Release posted 8/8/13 – An alert neighbor called the police to report a suspicious vehicle pulling in the cul-de-sac in the 600 blk of Edgeview. This is the same area where an attempt burglary occurred on August 6, 2013.  The reporting party observed two young males dressed in “hoodies” exit the vehicle. One was dressed in all dark clothing and the other with dark pants and a white hoodie.  They walked towards an address where an elderly couple live and no children reside there.

They rang the doorbell and when the home owner answered the door, he saw one subject run from the front of his house and the other subject running from the side of his home. The home owner called 9-1-1 not knowing that his neighbor had also called.

One suspect took off running towards the Monastery property while the other fled in the vehicle they were driving. Responding officers were able to stop the vehicle which was fleeing the area without the headlights on.  The driver of the vehicle was detained and after further investigation subsequently arrested for suspicion of attempt burglary. A containment was setup with the assistance of Arcadia and Pasadena PD and a search for the other suspect turned up negative.

The investigation is continuing.
