During the last seven day period, the Police Department handled 453 service events, resulting in 109 investigations.  Following are the last week's highlighted issues and events:
Domestic Violence
January 13 at 12:28 p.m., a resident in the 900 block of West Olive reported her neighbors were fighting and that the male subject had a knife.  Officers arrived and summoned paramedics, as both the male and female had injuries.  They were taken to separate hospitals; their injuries were not life threatening.  An Emergency Protection Order was obtained on the female's behalf.  Due to their injuries, neither party was arrested.  The investigation will be completed and forwarded to the District Attorney's office.
Ex-Felon in Possession of a Loaded Firearm / Ex-Felon in Possession of Ammunition - Suspect Arrested
January 13 at 9:41 p.m., an officer was patrolling the area of Magnolia and Central when she observed a Lexus with tinted windows that rolled through a stop sign.  She attempted a traffic stop.  The driver did not yield immediately, but eventually stopped at Alta Vista and Montana.  Upon approaching, the officer observed a rifle in the vehicle and ordered the driver to put his hands on the steering wheel.  She requested additional officers.  Assisting officers arrived and were able to safely remove the driver and detain him.  The weapon had one round of unexpended ammunition in the chamber and a magazine with three additional rounds was found next to the driver seat.  The driver is a convicted felon.  He was arrested and booked for several felony charges.
Injury Traffic Collision
On January 17 at 5:08 p.m., a 13 year old bicyclist was hit in the crosswalk at Mountain and Wildrose.  The bicyclist was thrown from his bicycle and paramedics were requested.  The 13 year old said he was a little sore, but did not want to be taken to a hospital by ambulance.  His parents said they would take him later if there was a need.  A traffic accident investigation was conducted.
Possession of Burglary Tools - Suspect Arrested
January 18 at 3:29 a.m., an officer was patrolling the area of Pomona and California and observed a suspicious subject who is known for burglary and is on parole.  The officer contacted and searched the individual and found he was in possession of lock picks and slugs in the size and shape of a U.S. dollar coin.  The suspect was arrested.
Commercial Burglary
January 19 at 3:07 a.m., an employee of a hotel in the 900 block of South Fifth reported a burglary committed by a male suspect seen on video entering the rear of the hotel through an unlocked door.  The suspect approached the front counter while the clerk was away, forced open the cash register, and removed an unknown amount of cash.  Once a copy of the video is available, it will be provided to police.  The investigation is continuing.
Residential Hot Prowl Burglary
January 19 at 4:43 a.m., a resident in the 400 block of East Duarte was preparing to go to work when she discovered her purse was missing.  Upon further investigation, she discovered her kitchen window screen had been removed.  Apparently, someone opened the unlocked kitchen window, removed the victim's keys from the kitchen counter, and unlocked the door.  Once inside, the suspect took the victim's purse.  The investigation is continuing.

  1. I have noticed a dramatic increase in police activity over the past 2 weeks. Over the weekend there were many patrol cars "cruising" the neighborhoods more than usual. Tonight, there was (still is) police activity on Myrtle and Duarte Roads as well as helicopters.
