Starting overnight last Thursday, thieves targeted a dozen vehicles for auto burglary in Arcadia over the weekend. It began on Friday with five (5) victims reporting window smash burglaries in the 900 block of West Huntington Drive that occurred overnight Thursday. Five (5) additional cars were targeted similarly in the area of Gloria Road, Hampton Road, and Arbolada Drive in the north end of town on Saturday night. Two (2) reports came in on Monday morning having occurred overnight Sunday on Country Oaks Drive near First Avenue. In the latter two burglaries the mode of entry was not determined.
Loss in the weekend vehicle burglaries ranged from tools and GPS units to wallets and cash. Please remember to not keep valuables in your vehicles. Objects in plain sight are targets for thieves. It is unknown whether or not vehicle alarms were activated in any of the burglaries but this is a good reminder to not be complacent when hearing a car alarm sounding. Take a look and report any suspicious persons to the police. Anyone with information on the vehicle burglaries or any additional victims are urged to call APD at (626) 574-5150.
