Trending in Arrests - Lancaster Man Arrested for Residential Burglary

Each week, we will post an arrest of interest pointing toward arrest and crime trends within Arcadia. We have had a couple of "hot prowl" residential burglaries reported in recent weeks. This type of burglary is when someone is home at the time, many times associated with a burglary occurring overnight.

On February 21st, a resident in the 100 block of West Foothill Boulevard was awakened about midnight to someone trying to open a rear sliding door at the home. The resident called APD and watched the suspect make his way into the unlocked garage where he ransacked boxes of property. Officers arrived quickly and detained the male suspect in the driveway of the home.

Phillip F. Valle, a 39-year-old Lancaster man was arrested and booked on felony charges at the Arcadia City Jail.

It is unknown if Valle is responsible for any other crimes in the area. Unlocked homes, garages, vehicles are often targets for thieves looking for an easy way to steal your valuables. Anyone with information on this case or other cases is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at 626-574-5156.
