Three Arrested for Residential Burglary in Arcadia
Arcadia Police Officers arrested three male adults yesterday morning for suspicion of Residential Burglary. Moments after hearing a knock at the front door, a resident in the 11oo block of Altura Terrace heard a rear sliding glass door being opened. The resident walked into the bedroom and confronted a male standing inside the open sliding door. The suspect fled out the door without saying anything and, without taking any property. The resident saw the suspect run to a “tan” car and flee the area. This occurred at about 8:48 am, Monday, November 3, 2014. The crime was reported to APD but no suspects were located.
Later in the morning on Monday, November 3, 2014, at about 11:45 am, a patrol officer came across a tan Lexus at Encanto Drive and Golden West Avenue. The tan Lexus had expired tabs and was not registered locally. The officer conducted a traffic stop and contacted two males in the vehicle. A third male was seen running away from the area of the traffic stop and he was detained at Hugo Reid Primary School by assisting officers. During the investigation, officers learned of an attempted Residential Burglary having occurred nearby, just minutes prior to the traffic stop.
Based on witness accounts and evidence found inside the vehicle, officers arrested all three males who were later booked at the Arcadia City Jail on suspicion of Residential Burglary with a bail of $100,000.00 each. Arrested was Erren W. Kelly, 19 years old from Rialto, Creig D.R. Leagons, 21 years old from Pasadena, and Deandre L. Huston, 20 years old from Pasadena.
This is a good example of community and officers working together to help prevent crime. Remember, if you “See Something, Say Something” in order to better assist your police department.
