For Immediate Release:

On Thursday September 2, 2010 at approximately 1:30PM, and Arcadia Police Officer observed the suspect driving a 1997 Lexus in the area of Santa Clara Avenue and Santa Anita Avenue. A records check on the vehicle’s license plate indicated that the Lexus was reported stolen out of the city of Los Angeles.

The officer attempted to stop the stolen car, but the suspect attempted to evade the officer by running stop signs and accelerating away from the pursuing officer. The suspect drove east into the city of Monrovia where he abandoned the stolen vehicle in the area of Fig Street and Central Avenue. Arcadia and Monrovia officers quickly locked down the area preventing the suspect’s escape. A Monrovia resident contacted Arcadia Police officers and told them an unknown suspect broke into his home and was hiding inside the residence.

Arcadia SWAT was alerted and responded to the Monrovia home to handle the now barricaded suspect. Arcadia SWAT, along with members of Pasadena PD SWAT, spent 4½ hours handling the tactical situation that resulted in the apprehension of the suspect Wilson inside of the Monrovia home. Wilson was taken into custody without incident.
