• Arcadia Burglaries

    ARCADIA (CNS) – Arcadia police officers were on guard today against a
    man who has been carrying out hot prowl burglaries.
    A woman woke up and saw a man with a flashlight in her bedroom about
    4:50 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of Diamond Street, said Arcadia police Sgt
    Tom Le Veque in a statement posted on his department’s blog. The burglar
    grabbed her purse and ran off, causing no injuries.
    The next night, a man heard someone trying to open his front door in the
    600 block of West Walnut Avenue about 11 p.m., Le Veque said. Then, the
    burglar began opening a side door. When the resident turned on his porch light,
    the intruder shined a flashlight in his face and ran off.
    Both victims described the burglar as a white man possibly in his 20s, 5
    feet 10, about 150 pounds and carrying a flashlight.
    “In both crimes, the suspect appears to be looking for a crime of
    opportunity, targeting unlocked residential doors,’ Le Veque said.
    Police urged residents to check their doors and windows before going to
    bed and setting their house alarms.
    Anyone with information on the burglar was urged to call the Arcadia
    Police Department at (626) 574-5150.
