Residential Burglaries by Ruse

A pair of burglary suspects hit at least two homes Saturday morning and burglarized each residence by use of a ruse. Both incidents occurred at about 11:30 AM, one in the 300 block of E. Magna Vista and the other in the 400 block of E. Lemon. The pair knocked on the door and told the victim that they were there to conduct some sort of survey or construction work, asking the victim to accompany the female suspect outside. The male slipped into the home and stole money while the victim's attention was diverted.

The suspects were described as a male Hispanic, about 25-30 years old with a shaved head, and a female, white or Hispanic, 25 years old, dark hair wearing a flower print skirt.

This serves as a reminder to not allow persons entry to your home that you do not know and don't allow someone to lure you outside for any reason if you have not initiated the contact. Call the police should this type of event happen to you. Get good descriptions and be a good witness. Anyone with information is asked to call APD Detectives at (626) 574-5160.
