• San Marino Police Warn Residents to Be Alert For Burglars


    SAN MARINO (CNS) – Police are warning residents of San Marino recently to be on the lookout for two men suspected of trying to burglarize residences by distracting homeowners.

    One of the suspects knocked on the door of a home in the 2300 block of Lorain Road around 4 p.m. Wednesday and, while the other sat in a white truck parked in front of the residence, stated he was an Edison employee who had to check power lines in the backyard, according to a statement from the San Marino Police Department.

    He asked the homeowner to follow him, which she did for about 10 minutes, and when she went back inside after the suspects left she discovered her safe and other valuables were missing, police said.

    An attempted robbery in the 2100 block of Roanoke Road on the same day and by the same suspects was thwarted when the homeowner refused to follow the suspect into her yard, according to police. She called Southern California Edison, learned none of its personnel were working in the area, then called police.

    The suspects are Hispanic and were wearing long-sleeved blue work shirts and blue baseball caps possibly adorned with tree service logos, police said. The vehicle they were in is a late-model white “work style” pickup truck, according to police.
