Sheriff’s Crime Log

A residential burglary was reported in the 4100 block of Forest Hill Drive on Nov. 22 between 5 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. The homeowner, who said she had locked her residence, said when she returned she found the rear glass patio door shattered. She also noticed that the master bedroom, bathroom, guest room and instrument room were ransacked, with drawers left open and clothes left on the floor. The victim told deputies that multiple pieces of jewelry were stolen, but said she was unsure about other items. Between 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. her gardener was doing landscaping. He told deputies that he did not notice damage or signs of a break-in. Although the victim did not have an alarm system or cameras installed, the deputies did find a camera in the neighborhood that might have captured the suspects.

A residential burglary was reported in the 4300 block of Beulah Drive on Nov. 22 between 5:30 p.m. and 6:32 p.m. A witness told the deputies that while walking on Beulah Drive, he saw flashlights beaming from the inside of a residence and noticed that some of the interior room lights were illuminated. Simultaneously, he witnessed two suspects jump over a fence located on the south side of the residence as the suspects yelled at one another. As they ran toward the road, the witness noticed a black Lexus SUV slowly drive toward Foothill Boulevard, waiting for the two suspects to get in. When the suspects entered the car, the driver made a U-turn and headed southbound toward Berkshire Avenue until it was out of view. The witness recorded a video of the suspect leaving the location. The deputies scanned the stolen plate and contacted the Los Angeles Police Department to inquire about the vehicle registration. The witness described the two suspects as short, thin males wearing dark ski masks and dark clothing. The homeowner, who said he locked the doors to the residence before leaving, received a notification of the burglary alarm being activated. He then received a phone call from the witness informing him that there were suspects inside the residence. The victim immediately returned to his house and told the deputies that his 2013 Apple MacBook Air, three diamond rings and two graduation rings were stolen. The deputies inspected the residence and noticed the rear glass door was broken along with the residence’s alarm device.

A man attempted to use fraudulent currency to purchase merchandise at a business in the 2200 block of Foothill Boulevard on Nov. 27 at 11:12 a.m. The manager told a deputy that when the suspect handed currency to the cashier, the employee determined that the currency was fake upon examining it and called over an informant. The informant immediately identified the money as being counterfeit by its texture and appearance. They also noticed that five of the six serial numbers on the bills were identical. The informant advised the suspect that his money was counterfeit and she would have to hold on to them. The suspect said that his money was real. The informant told the suspect that he would have to speak to law enforcement about the bills. The suspect then left the location without any merchandise.
