Trending in Arrests - Multiple Folks Take the Bait and are Jailed at the End of 2016

Each week, we will post an arrest of interest pointing toward arrest and crime trends within Arcadia. The last week or so of 2016 was filled with arrests of folks taking the bait and stealing GPS bait packages from porches of Arcadia homes. The four incidents below were some of the bait package activity and almost all of the arrests lead to additional charges such as probation or narcotics violations. This has been a common factor in many of the bait package arrests leading to additional charges and discovery of other crimes.

Robert W. Rouse, a 52-year-old male from Monrovia and Livier Ramirez, a 35-year-old female from Pico Rivera were arrested on December 23, 2016.

Paul R. Halpin, a 29-year-old male from Long Beach and Raquel A. Rodriguez, a 34-year-old female from Whittier were arrested on December 27, 2016.

Mark J. Espejo, a 38-year-old male and Angel Arturo, a 32-year-old male, both from El Monte, were arrested on December 28, 2016.

Each of these suspects were booked at the Arcadia City Jail for felony Grand Theft charges. Four of them faced additional felony charges.
