While the quantity of residential burglaries in La Cañada Flintridge has decreased from late last year, a series of garage burglaries started where bicycles were targeted. Specifically, suspect(s) apparently drove the streets, located “open garage doors” and stole or attempted to steal bicycles.
A suspect in an early March garage burglary on Houseman Avenue was scared off by the resident, and witnesses observed the male, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, enter a small white sedan with red straps on the open trunk. He was followed onto the freeway.
Please close your garage doors and monitor your neighborhoods for incidents that require a law enforcement response.
In the foothills we have also had reports of people calling residents claiming to be trying to help a relative in custody (jail) in another country.
