Jan. 29

Burglary: 4100 block of Dover Road. According to video surveillance footage, two adults (no further identification available) entered the property through the backyard and began peering into windows at around 2:52 p.m. They are later seen exiting the house and getting into a waiting silver 4-door sedan driven by a third person. The burglary was discovered by a household member who arrived home at about 5:20 p.m. that day to find it ransacked. When her mother arrived home later, she told investigating deputies that a Harry Winston diamond wristwatch and cash had been stolen from a safe while other cash, which she’d stored in an envelope, was overlooked. It was also apparent that miscellaneous jewelry was missing from elsewhere in the home, but the victims could not immediately say what else was taken. A sliding glass door, an interior closet door and a door lock were damaged during the crime.

Burglary: 2100 block of Foothill Boulevard. Sometime between 9 p.m. Jan. 29 and 8:50 a.m. Jan. 30, a pharmacy was broken into, apparently through drywall at the rear of the building. An unspecified number of bottles containing Norco were taken. The store’s owner told investigators the alarm had been armed when the pharmacy closed, but she’d received no alerts overnight that it had been tripped. The last time the surveillance camera had recorded any movement was at 9 p.m. on the 29th. She was unsure if suspects could have damaged the camera.

Purse theft and attempted use of access card: 900 block of Town Center Drive. A leather Tory Burch purse containing a wallet, ID and other items left hanging on the back of a chair while a woman sat at a table at around 2:45 p.m. was stolen without her being aware of the theft until afterward. While deputies were investigating her call for help, the victim began receiving text alerts of various attempts to use her credit/debit cards at other businesses.

Feb. 1

Petty theft, wallet: 400 block of Foothill Blvd. A woman reported that as she prepared to make a purchase at a grocery store at around 1 p.m. she discovered her wallet was missing from her purse. She’d last seen it at about 12:30 p.m. when she left her bank. Later it was discovered that attempts had been made to use her credit cards at an Apple store in Pasadena.

Feb. 3

Grand theft: 1100 block of Atlee Drive. A woman who said she’d shopped at Target, Gelson’s and Ralphs between 3 and 6 p.m. that day returned home to realize her Samsung S9 cellphone was missing. A ping search determined the phone was in Cypress Park.
