Theft From Auto-Arrest - Pasadena

On July 10, 2014 at 1:18 a.m., numerous officers responded to the area of the 100 block of Temple Drive for a report of a theft from auto that just occurred.


Upon arrival, officers spoke with the victim who advised that he had just observed a person taking items from his work truck.


The victim had just exited his home to report for work when he immediately observed the rear door to his work truck was open and an unknown male was removing items. It was determined that the suspect stole tools and copper wiring from the vehicle. The suspect saw the victim and immediately fled on foot toward Forsythia Lane.


The victim noticed a vehicle parked at the corner of Temple and Forsythia. The vehicle, a blue 4-door Pontiac, was occupied by a female. The victim was able to get the tag number from the vehicle as he called 911. She immediately drove away from the area.


The victim relayed that he believed the suspect and the driver of the vehicle knew each other. The victim also saw the suspect again walking into the wooded area talking on a cellphone.


The victim described the suspect as a white male, mid 30s, wearing a black tank-top, tan cargo shorts, and carrying either a black duffel bag or a backpack.


Officers searched the area where the suspect was last seen. They observed a white male running into the wooded area back toward Featherstone Rd. He appeared to fit the description of the suspect. Officers were unable to locate him at that time.


Officers then located the female and vehicle observed earlier by the victim. The vehicle was parked at a business adjacent to the community and was occupied by a white female. She claimed to be waiting for her boyfriend. Officers believed at this point that her boyfriend was in fact the suspect that they were seeking.


Officers decided to back off and utilize covert surveillance to see if the suspect met up with the female. Shortly thereafter, a detective observed a white male, wearing a black tank top and tan cargo shorts enter the passenger seat of the females vehicle. This person matched the description of the suspect as described by the victim.


Officers conducted a traffic stop. The victim was brought to the scene and he immediately identified the passenger as the suspect he had observed. He also immediately recognized the female and her vehicle as those from the scene of the theft.


The suspect was charged with theft under $1,000.00 and rouge and vagabond.
