Arrest of Interest/Crime Trends - Residential Burglary Continues to be a Focus, 2 Arrested Monday Night

Arcadia officers had responded to three separate residential burglaries in the south end of town this past Monday evening, all reported after 9:00 p.m.  Not too long after, and in the same general area, an alert resident saw three males entering a yard in the 00 block of Naomi Avenue at about 10:44 p.m. The resident called APD immediately. As officers arrived, the headlights of a parked car adjacent to the property flashed. Officers approached the car and found two men laying down inside the car, one in the driver's seat, and one in the back, both wearing white paper jumpsuits. During the investigation, officers found gloves, a ski mask, flashlights, and other property in the car which was a rental. Coins from Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan were also found in the car. A check of the home did not find any forced entry and the third male was not located either.


Derrick E. Sankers, a 21-year-old Palmdale man, and Antonio R. Watts, a 22-year-old Lancaster man, were both arrested for suspicion of residential burglary and booked at the Arcadia City Jail.
