Following are the weekend’s highlighted issues and events.

Grand Theft Auto / Possession of Burglary Tools – Suspects Arrested
June 30 at 12:59 a.m., while on patrol in the area of Greystone and Stedman, an officer saw a suspicious vehicle stopped in the roadway.

The vehicle was registered to an address in another city and the key in the ignition was found to be a shaved key that belonged to a Toyota, but the vehicle was a Honda.

Suspecting that another person may be involved, officers began checking the area and found a third suspect inside a vehicle across the street. As the officers were removing the third suspect from the vehicle, the owners of the vehicle exited their home and told the officers they did not know the suspect sitting inside their vehicle. After completing their investigation, it was determined that the three suspects came to the area in an unreported stolen vehicle and were in the process of stealing another vehicle in Monrovia when the officers found them. All three suspects were arrested and taken into custody.
