Alleged Pro-Italia burglars to be arraigned

Two men who allegedly burglarized a Glendale motorcycle shop and led police on a pursuit are expected to be arraigned Tuesday in a Los Angeles Superior courtroom, officials said.

The men — Enrique Beltran, 37, of Hawthorne and Carlos Luna, 28, of Inglewood — were arrested Saturday morning after California Highway Patrol officers chased them on several freeways and eventually stopped them at the 105 Freeway and Hawthorne Boulevard, police said. A third suspect inside the vehicle fled the area before police arrested the pair.

They allegedly stole approximately 50 motorcycle jackets and about five women’s leather pants at 6:18 a.m. from the Pro-Italia Motorcycle shop on the 3300 block of North Verdugo Road, according to Glendale police reports.

Beltran was booked on suspicion of burglary, grand theft auto, evading police, possessing narcotics paraphernalia, grand theft and an outstanding warrant, according to Glendale police reports. Luna was booked in connection with burglary, grand theft and possessing methamphetamine.
