Sheriff’s Crime Report

A residential burglary was reported in the 4300 block of Beulah Drive on April 26 at 12:20 p.m. An employee of the homeowners heard footsteps coming from the second floor when she arrived to clean. She then shouted out the homeowners’ names believing that they were home to let them know that she had entered the residence. After, the employee heard a loud bang from the second floor and thought that the family dog may have knocked something over. As she began to clean, she discovered shattered glass in the master bedroom and realized that the house had been broken into. The employee called the homeowners, and the homeowners called the sheriff’s station. Responding deputies searched every room to see if there were any suspects inside and while making their way through the home, they determined the master bedroom had been ransacked and a second window, located in the bathroom, had been shattered. In the master bedroom, a handheld walkie talkie, a brown Gucci handbag and a radio frequency jammer were left behind.
One of the homeowners reported a stolen firearm, which was kept in a locked drawer. The firearm, described as a black 45 Caliber, Colt semi-automatic weapon, was not registered to him and was reportedly never used by the owner since purchasing it.
The home’s surveillance cameras went offline during the incident, but a contractor in the neighborhood had cameras that captured the suspects jumping onto the property that was burglarized. In the video, the deputy saw a woman and a man walking through the side yard of the residence, where they entered tall bushes. The video did not record the suspects leaving. The woman was described as having blonde hair, wearing a black cap, a black short-sleeved shirt and black pants, and carrying a brown Gucci purse. The man was described as having black hair, wearing a black cap, a black hoodie, black pants and a Raiders backpack.

A grand theft was reported in the 900 block of Town Center Drive on April 27 between 12:16 p.m. and 12:40 p.m. The victim told the deputy that she walked into a business and later realized that her satchel had been stolen, which was hanging from the chair. The victim retraced her steps, believing she may have misplaced it, but was unable to locate it. An employee from the business confirmed that she walked in with her satchel. Items inside her satchel included multiple credit cards, a Texas driver’s license, a black iPhone, prescription glasses and money. The victim later found out that her Chase cards were used at a Vons, the Glendale Galleria and at Nike. She then closed her bank accounts after receiving alerts.

A petty theft incident was reported in the 600 block of Foothill Boulevard on April 24 at 12:42 p.m. The victim said that she was shopping in the city, and while in a business, a suspect wearing black clothing and a brown hat approached her. She was suspicious of the interaction and searched for her wallet within her purse, which she found. She did not believe that the suspect had stolen anything and continued to shop. Later, she returned home and immediately noticed her phone was not inside her purse, where she had last placed it. She called Spectrum and deactivated the phone. She then called the business and spoke to a loss prevention representative and notified them of the incident. She was told that a second suspect approached her while she was talking to the first suspect and reached into her purse and stole her phone.

A petty theft incident was reported in the 1000 block of Foothill Boulevard on April 24 between 12:30 p.m. and 12:55 p.m. The victim said that she met with some friends for lunch, and by the end of their lunch, she noticed that her wallet was stolen from inside her purse. Her purse was set on the floor next to her seat. Her friend also had her wallet stolen from her purse during lunch. The victim said that her wallet contained her driver’s license, some credit cards and money. She later received a notification that her two credit cards were being used in Glendale, which prompted her to cancel her cards. The victim contacted the owner of the restaurant and after reviewing surveillance footage, saw a man and woman walk around and never purchase anything. At one point, they bent down near the victim and then left the location.
