Man Arrested for Commercial Burglary After Stealing Tracker Cash Pack from Arcadia Business

We have had much success apprehending thieves targeting packages on porches using our tracker bait packages. Detectives will also place trackers in money packs or other items to help combat recurring crimes. Local businesses in the 1200 block S. Golden West Avenue have been victims of commercial burglary and attempted burglary over the last few months. In response to the burglaries, Detectives worked with merchants and placed trackers inside the businesses to be used while the businesses are closed.


Early last Saturday morning APD received an activation of a tracker cash pack inside one of the businesses in the 1200 block S. Golden West Avenue. Officers arrived and found the business had been burglarized. The GPS signal led Officers to a nearby apartment complex where a man was detained. The cash pack was found nearby and Efrain R. Quezada, a 33-year-old from San Gabriel was arrested for Burglary.
