A resident in the 1700 blk of Orangewood returned home today at about 2:30 PM and found his front and back doors standing open. His house had been burglarized. He looked out to see a suspect run across his front lawn to an awaiting car. The resident had surprised the intruder who fled in the vehicle. The suspect was described as a male African American in his 20's, 6' tall, wearing a red baseball cap, a white shirt and dark shorts. The suspect vehicle was a newer Mercedes SLK230, red, 2 door, with unknown paper plates.
This is the second residential burglary north of Foothill Boulevard in as many days. Yesterday, a home in the 200 block of Hacienda was ransacked and burglarized. It is unknown if the two are related. Anyone with information is asked to call APD Detectives at (626) 574-5160.
