Commercial Burglar Detained

Early Tuesday morning, at about 2:30 AM, Officers were called to the rear of Walgreen's in the 100 block of East Live Oak due to suspicious noises. Officers arrived to find a 21 year old Temple City man near the business dumpster, along with his vehicle which was still running nearby. Officers found the man to be in possession of a "pellet" handgun and evidence possibly linking the man to a commercial burglary at a business in El Monte. It appears that the noise heard was the man attempting to open a cash drawer against the dumpster. El Monte PD responded and took custody of the subject and the evidence.
