Sheriff’s Crime Report

An attempted burglary was reported in the 4800 block of Oakwood Avenue on April 22 at 10:10 p.m. The victim said that she saw a flashlight shining through her bedroom window and also heard a knock, when she opened her curtain, she saw a man standing outside. She got frightened and called the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station.
The deputy reviewed the video footage and saw two men jump over the gate of the residence. The first suspect was wearing a light-colored jacket, a facemask, gloves, a backpack, dark pants and light-colored shoes. The second suspect was wearing a light-colored jacket, a facemask, gloves, light-colored pants and dark-colored shoes. Both of them were seen looking through the backyard while going in and out of the camera view. The second suspect was seen holding a handheld radio. The video camera captured the men eventually running out of the yard, traveling northbound on Oakwood Lane.
Due to the recent burglaries in the area with suspects wearing facemasks and gloves, the deputy believed the men were on the property to commit burglary.


An attempted burglary was reported in the 3600 block of Figueroa Street on April 18 between 10:30 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. The victim said that he was awakened by the sound of voices and a popping noise coming from his backyard area while he was in his bedroom. He then turned on the backyard exterior lights and checked the ADT camera application on his phone and did not see anything suspicious and went back to sleep. The next day, the victim found one of his back glass doors shattered. He then checked his surveillance camera footage from the night before and it showed three men fully masked, looking into the window. Shortly after, one of the suspects was seen shattering the back, glass door with an unknown object. When the suspects saw the exterior lights go on, they ran toward the south side of the property and into a vehicle that went southbound on Figueroa Street and out of view. The victim said that the suspects never made entry into the home. The victim also told the deputy that the property to the south of his residence has been vacant for about a year.


An identity theft was reported in the 1200 block of Olive Lane on April 12 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. The victim said that an unknown person stole money from his Bank of America account and made two transactions of $5,200 inside two different Bank of America locations with a bank teller, one located in Montrose and another in Alhambra. The victim became aware of the theft two days later, after he opened an email advising him that his Bill Pay accounts were closed. After, he viewed his bank account online, where his accounts were locked due to possible fraud. He saw the two withdrawals that he did not authorize and contacted the fraud department to report the incident. The fraud representative and branch manager provided the victim with little to no information regarding the transaction and froze his accounts to prevent further withdrawals. The victim still had his debit card that was used and said, “I don’t use my debit card. I leave it at home.”
