Police Blotter: Stolen Car With A Stolen License Plate

It stands to reason that a stolen license plate won't effectively disguise a stolen car.

From the Monrovia Police Department:

During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 381 service events, resulting in 63 investigations.  


February 12 at 4:06 a.m., an officer on patrol discovered several locations vandalized with graffiti. The graffiti was found in the 2000-2100 blocks of South Myrtle, 200 block of East Duarte and the 200 block of Kruse. The crimes occurred between 1:30 and 4:00 a.m. The suspect(s) used black spray paint to write the graffiti. Investigation continuing. 

Stolen Vehicle Recovered
