ARCADIA - Five people including three juveniles were arrested May 28 and found with stolen property after a resident found the suspects’ presence suspicious.
A 17-year-old suspect was going from door to door in the area of Foothill Boulevard near Ranch Road Tuesday, presenting a missing dog flyer to residents. One resident in particular didn’t believe her.
“When the girl was told ‘no’, she quickly left and got into a green 2002 Nissan Altima with a male driver. As the Nissan left, the resident was able to write down the license plate. The resident did not recognize the girl and felt her actions were suspicious so they called APD,” according to the Arcadia Police Department.
Officers found the Altima nearby in the 1200 block of Rancho Road, detained the 17-year-old suspect as she walked back to the car and four male suspects within. Officers then found what they believed to be stolen property, Arcadia Police said.
During the field investigation, officers were notified of a home burglary in Sierra Madre and believing the detained suspects were connected, a witness was brought to the scene and positively identified the suspects, Arcadia Police said.
Amaijay Duncan, a 20-year-old male from Compton, Trevor Pamphlim, an 18-year-old male from Los Angeles, a 17-year-old male from Granada Hills, a 16-year-old male from Compton and the 17-year-old female from Compton were all arrested on suspicion of residential burglary.
The suspects may be connected to several attempted burglaries and two area burglaries, Arcadia Police said.
