[Monrovia Police activities from the Police Department's Neighborhood Watch Report for August 22-25. - Brad Haugaard]
Following are the weekend's highlighted issues and events.  
Vehicle Burglary
August 22 at 2:22 p.m., a female subject came to the Police Department lobby to report a vehicle burglary that had occurred several days prior.  Her vehicle was parked on the street in front of her house in the 200 block of Acacia.  The suspect ransacked her vehicle and took several gift cards.  She reported the theft late as she had to leave town for a couple days and had just returned.  The investigation is continuing.
Grand Theft Auto
August 22 at 7:06 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the 100 block of Stedman regarding the report of a stolen vehicle.  The victim last saw his vehicle parked in the carport of his complex at about 1:00 p.m.  All keys are accounted for and there were no signs of forced entry.  The vehicle is a gray, 2004 Toyota Corolla.  The investigation is continuing.
Missing Person / Suicide
August 22 at 7:02 p.m., police received a call reporting a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot in the 200 block of West Foothill.  Officers arrived and discovered an adult male subject lying across the bench seat of the vehicle.  The victim appears to have succumbed to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.  A check of the vehicle license plate revealed the subject had been reported missing on August 16 and was suicidal.  The Los Angeles County Coroner's office was notified.        
Grand Theft Auto
August 24 at 7:22 a.m., a vehicle was reported stolen from the 300 block of North May Avenue.  The vehicle is gray, 2013 Honda Odyssey and was taken sometime between August 23 to the 24.  The investigation is continuing.
Special Enforcement Team Weekly Activity
Driving Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance / Under the influence of a Controlled Substance / Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
On August 23, Special Enforcement Team officers stopped a vehicle for traffic violations in the 200 block of Norumbega.  The vehicle was occupied by a male subject and his girlfriend.  The officers observed that both subjects were showing signs and symptoms of being under the influence of methamphetamine and they recovered a syringe in the female subject's property.  Both subjects were arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and the female subject was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Possession of a Controlled Substance / Weapons Offense / Unsafe Speed / False Information to a Peace Officer / Unlicensed Driver / Felony Warrant
On August 24, Special Enforcement Team officers assisted a patrol officer when he stopped a vehicle for vehicle code violations at Myrtle and Longden and the male passenger became verbally abusive and tried to force his way out of the vehicle.  He had methamphetamine in his wallet and a switchblade knife was within his reach.  He was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and the illegal knife.
The female driver had no identification and the officers could not verify she had a valid license, so she was arrested and the vehicle was stored.  She was later identified and found to have given officers a false name.  She was found to have an outstanding no-bail probation warrant and was charged with unsafe speed, false information to an officer, being an unlicensed driver and the felony warrant.
