During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 380 service events, resulting in 58 investigations. 

Fraud - Suspect Arrested
January 26 at 12:58 p.m., police received a call from a business in the 300 block of West Huntington, reporting a suspect at their front counter who was attempting to return items with a stolen credit card. The suspect had purchased $800 worth of headphones the previous day, using false identification and a stolen credit card. Store employees realized the credit card was stolen after the purchase was made and the suspect had left the store. The suspect had now returned to the store and was attempting to return the headphones for cash. Employees recognized the suspect and called police. Officers arrived at the location and detained the suspect without incident. The suspect was still in possession of the fictitious identification and credit cards. The suspect was arrested and taken into custody for fraud charges. After further investigation, it was learned that this suspect had charged over $100,000 in stolen merchandise throughout the San Gabriel Valley. 

Warrant – Suspect Arrested
January 28 at 8:29 p.m., a female subject called police to report her car was stolen from the 400 block of South Myrtle. An officer was dispatched to the location and he contacted the subject. While he was speaking with her, he noticed signs of intoxication. The officer located the subject’s vehicle on Myrtle, just north of where they were standing. A computer check of the subject revealed she had an outstanding warrant for her arrest; she was arrested and taken into custody for the warrant.
