Gang Injunction - Suspects Arrested
On September 7 at 8:56 p.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop in the 400 block of East Duarte for a littering violation. Upon contacting the occupants, the officer found the three occupants to be in violation of Monrovia's gang injunction. The occupants were arrested for the violation and later released on a citation.
On September 7 at 10:44 p.m., police responded to a business in the 100 block of West Foothill regarding a burglary. A security guard in the parking lot observed two females exit a vehicle and place black tape across the rear license plate to obstruct it. The two females entered the business and the guard remained in the parking lot to monitor the vehicle.
Several minutes later, the two females exited the market with a shopping cart full of store merchandise. As the females approached their vehicle, they saw the security guard and fled on foot, leaving the merchandise and their vehicle behind. The officer who responded recovered enough evidence to establish a burglary and to possibly identify one of the suspects. The vehicle was stored and the investigation is continuing.
On September 8, four vehicle burglaries were reported throughout the day. The burglaries occurred in the 400 block of East Cypress, the 800 block of West Hillcrest and in the 600 and 700 blocks of West Foothill. The entry into the vehicles appears similar and was possibly made by the same suspect(s). The door locks on all four vehicles were broken to gain entry. The investigation is continuing.
