Jan. 9

Theft, shoplifting: 600 block of Foothill Boulevard. A man walking toward his second-floor office at an area store at around 1:29 p.m. reported seeing two black males with large amounts of clothing in their hands. When he got to work, he checked video surveillance, which showed one man, about 20 years old and 6 feet tall wearing a black bandanna, white sweater and beige pants, and a second man of the same age, about 5 feet 7 with dreadlocks wearing a black sweater and jeans. The two men grabbed several polo shirts and jeans before running down a flight of stairs and out the front door. The witness followed the two men, who got into a gray Dodge Neon sedan with no license plates and left.

Burglary, vehicle; unauthorized use of access card: 1900 block of Foothill Boulevard. A woman parked her 2018 Mercedes GLS 340 at the gym at around 10:12 a.m. When she came back about an hour later, she saw the rear passenger window was smashed. Her purse, containing a wallet, cash and several credit and gift cards, had been taken from the passenger floor board. Shortly thereafter, the victim received notification from Capital One that multiple unauthorized transactions had been made, including one at a Chevron station. Surveillance footage from the facility where the woman had parked showed a gray 2017 Honda Accord approach the upper parking lot and park. A Latino male in his 20s or 30s, weighing about 200 pounds, was seen walking around vehicles before quickly entering his vehicle and driving away.


Burglary, vehicle: 2200 block of Foothill Boulevard. A man went to visit a friend at a medical office, parking his locked 2014 Honda Accord at around 2:53 p.m. in an underground parking lot. When he returned at around 3:15 p.m., he noticed his driver’s side keyhole cover was missing. Thinking nothing of it, the man got a haircut at a barbershop nearby. When he returned to the vehicle, he noticed his Dell laptop was missing from the floor board, where he’d left it under a bag.

Jan. 11

Burglary, residence: 1200 block of Green Lane. A woman and her two daughters had gone to Pasadena from around 4:30 to 6:45 p.m. They were home at around 7:25 p.m. when one of the daughters noticed the balcony door of her bedroom had been kicked in and the room ransacked. The master bedroom and walk-in closet there had also been ransacked. Two white gold wedding rings had been taken, along with several pieces of high-end jewelry. Deputies observed pry marks on the bedroom’s French doors, and noted an alarm system had been turned off during the incident.

Jan. 13


Petty theft, unlocked vehicle: 200 block of Gould Avenue. A man told deputies he parked his 2017 Audi Q7 in his driveway at around 11 a.m. the day before, without locking it. When he returned to the vehicle that morning at around 8:30 a.m., he noticed his Apple iPod and numerous boxes of merchandise the man had planned to return were missing.
