Burglar Beware - It's a Community and Police Effort

As you can see from the CrimeMapping screenshot, burglaries over the past month continue in the area. However, Arcadia PD has had good success in nabbing several groups of residential burglary suspects in recent weeks.


Two cases, in particular, both involved a combination of adult and juvenile suspects where 4 suspects were apprehended after each burglary. Both cases occurred during daytime hours, one in the 300 block of Joyce Avenue and the other in the 2200 block of Highland Oaks Drive. In both crimes, suspects first knocked on the front door and when there was no response from inside, suspects then made their way to the rear yards and forced entry to the homes.


On Joyce, two juveniles and two adults were arrested, all being from the Highland, San Bernardino area. After the most recent Highland Oaks burglary, four juvenile teens from Altadena, Duarte, and Pasadena were arrested. One of this group, a 16-year-old from Duarte was already on probation for burglary.


Alert residents were crucial in both cases calling the police as soon as they saw something suspicious. While we remain diligent in proactive patrol, YOU play an important role in our efforts. Remember to always call the police immediately if you see something or someone suspicious.


Thanks to our partner area law enforcement for continued support and mutual aid. From officers on the ground assisting with containment of the area, to K-9 teams conducting searches, and air support overhead, we greatly appreciate the teamwork and assistance!
