Nice arrest today with the assistance of Pasadena PD Air Support and Sierra Madre PD! A resident was startled to find a man on his balcony attempting to open the bedroom/balcony door. When the suspect saw the victim inside the home, the suspect fled and the resident called APD. Officers arrived fairly quickly, along with a Sierra Madre PD unit and the Pasadena PD Airship (PD1). PD1 saw a vehicle pulling out of the area and radioed the SMPD ground unit who stopped the car. Ultimately, the resident identified the driver of that car as the suspect seen on his balcony. Luckily for the victim, the suspect never made it inside and fled. However, the suspect's actions landed him a trip to jail for attempted residential burglary. Great example of teamwork by multiple agencies, plain clothes staff, and the airship! The incident occurred near Andrea and Santa Anita this morning.
