Robbers Leave Empty Handed

Officers were called to a residence in the area of Lovell and Camino Real last night at about 8:50 pm, after a foiled robbery.  A couple returning home from a trade show in Orange County had just pulled into their driveway, when an older black Honda occupied by four males stopped behind the couple and blocked the driveway.  Two of the males jumped out and pointed handguns at the victims.  The victims ran away and were unharmed.  The suspects proceeded to smash out a couple of windows on the victim's vehicle in order to gain entry.  When the suspects found no property in the vehicle, they fled.

The victims deal in jewelry and believe the suspects had followed them from the show venue.  There was no loss, since the victims contract with a security service who removed all jewelry at the conclusion of the show.  The victims had no valuables with them at the time of the crime.

The suspects were only described as male Hispanics, 20-25 years old, dressed in dark clothing.

Anyone with information 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.
