Vehicle Vandalism Spree

At about 12:19 am on Saturday morning, November 13, 2010, Arcadia Officers were called to the 300 block of South Baldwin Avenue on report of multiple vehicle vandalisms.  The victim heard a loud noise outside their apartment and looked out to see two males and a female walking away from the parked cars along Baldwin Avenue.  A short time later, the victim went outside to find that several side mirrors on the parked vehicles had been broken.  The victim only described the suspects as teenagers, two males and one female, dressed in dark clothing, last seen walking north on Baldwin.

Over the course of the next hour, Officers found similar vandalisms to vehicles in the 200, 300, and 400 blocks of South Baldwin, one in the 900 block of Hugo Reid Drive, and one in the 00 block of Altura Road, for a total of nineteen vehicles damaged.  The exact dollar amount of the damage is unknown at this time.  Based on the witness information and crimes located, it appears that the suspects began their crime spree shortly after midnight, attacking vehicles in the 200 block of South Baldwin Avenue.  The suspects continued to walk northbound and damaged vehicles as they progressed, turning westbound on Hugo Reid, ultimately ending their activity in the area of Altura Road.  The crimes occurred between about midnight and 12:40 am.  The suspects used unknown force or object to break the side view mirrors.

Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to call Arcadia Police Detectives at 626-574-5160.  You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477), or by clicking on the "Submit a Tip" button on the APD Blog side bar.
