Last Tuesday morning, August 5th, a victim reported that her purse and belongings were taken from her vehicle while parked overnight in the 2200 blk of South Baldwin Avenue. She reported the loss of her credit cards immediately to her bank. The bank revealed that the cards were used locally at gas stations and a liquor store. Officers responded for follow-up at the Temple City liquor store and learned that the pair of suspects had just left the store before Officers arrived. Within minutes, the suspects were detained and arrested for use of the credit card. A 26 year old Temple City man and a 19 year old Alta Loma man were booked at APD.
This incident serves as a reminder to timely report your losses to not only the police, but also your credit card company or bank. Maintain account numbers and phone numbers to these companies in a place that is readily accessible in the event of a theft.
