Monrovia Police: Theft, Burglaries, Robbery, Etc.

[Monrovia Police activities from the Police Department's Neighborhood Watch Report for June 2-8. - Brad Haugaard]

During the last seven day period, the Police Department handled 549 service events, resulting in 85 investigations.  Following are the last week's highlighted issues and events:
Attempt Theft
On June 2, an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Mauna Loa regarding an attempt theft from a vehicle.  The victim parked her vehicle in front of her residence at 6:00 p.m. in the evening.  The next day she went to unlock her vehicle with the remote and discovered she had not locked her vehicle.  She inspected her vehicle and found it had been ransacked and the headliner had been burnt.  No items appeared to have been taken from the vehicle. 
Theft From a Vehicle
On June 2, an officer responded to the report of theft from a vehicle in the 100 block of West Walnut.  The victim parked his pickup truck at 11:15 p.m.  He returned to his vehicle the following day at 11:00 a.m. and drove to work, which is in the 300 block of West Huntington.  He parked and went into work.  When he exited his place of work, he noticed his tailgate was missing.  The victim does not believe it was taken while parked in the parking lot at work, since it is always busy.  He suspects that it was taken during the night while parked in front of his residence.
Traffic Accident - Overturned Vehicle
On June 4 at 10:41 p.m., a vehicle was traveling east on Colorado when the driver either fell asleep or had some type of medical issue.  The driver only remembers driving straight and then waking up with the vehicle upside down on its roof.  The driver was checked and did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  The driver was taken to a hospital for observation; no serious injuries were reported.
Driving Under the Influence / Possession of a Controlled Substance - Suspect Arrested
On June 6 at approximately 7:27 a.m., police received a call reporting a female in a red Honda Accord honking her horn and yelling.  Officers responded and stopped the vehicle.  The female was found to be driving under the influence and was arrested.  She was extremely uncooperative and verbally abusive.  A thorough search of her property revealed a baggie containing methamphetamine.  She was charged with driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance.  The female subject is schizophrenic and had been contacted several times over the previous weekend by officers.
Commercial Robbery
On June 6 at 4:19 p.m., police received a report of a robbery at a fast food business in the 300 block of West Huntington.  The suspect is described as a male Hispanic wearing a light blue cap and white t-shirt with horizontal stripes.  The suspect had a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded cash.  The suspect walked out to a gray or silver, 4-door Honda Civic with paper plates, and the driver was a heavy-set female.  The vehicle fled south on Magnolia, out of sight.  An area search and notification was made to neighboring agencies, but the vehicle was not located.  El Monte Police Department had a robbery that occurred later that day in their city; the description of the suspects and vehicle is a close match. 
Vehicle Burglary
On June 7 at 4:30 p.m., police responded to a vehicle burglary in the 200 block of West Scenic.  The reporting party believed someone had broken into their neighbor's vehicle.  An officer went to the location and found the interior of the vehicle had been ransacked.  He dusted for prints, took photos, and checked for witnesses. 
Possession of Burglary Tools
June 7 at 11:47 p.m., officers observed a subject who was a known burglar in the area of Foothill and Magnolia near midnight.  He was riding a bicycle without a light and no rear reflector.  He was detained regarding the violations and questioned about his activity.  His responses were ambiguous and in conflict.  After a consent search of his person and property, officers found a sufficient amount and type of tools consistent with tools used for auto burglaries to arrest the subject.  He was arrested and taken into custody for possession of burglary tools.
Residential Burglary
On June 8 at 4:18 p.m., a resident in the 900 block of Briarcliff Road reported a burglary.  He had returned home and found the front door had been smashed and two televisions, a laptop, and other miscellaneous items had been taken.  Officers responded and cleared the house; no suspects were inside. 
Commercial Robbery
On June 8 at 8:48 p.m., an armed robbery was reported at a business in the 300 block of West Huntington.  The suspect was described as a male Hispanic, approximately 25-years-old, large build, wearing a white hat, white long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans.  He approached the clerk, pulled a silver colored revolver and demanded money.  He was last seen running westbound from the location.
