This amusing tale about the arrest of some alleged inept car burglars Sunday comes from the Arcadia Police Officer’s Association Blog:
Sloppy work on the part of two suspects landed them in jail on Sunday evening, booked on suspicion of auto burglary. At about 6:30 PM, the victim returned to his parked car at the Westfield Shoppingtown, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, to find his stereo yanked from the dash. Along with the theft, the victim recovered a set of keys and a remote that were left inside the his car. The victim saw two suspicious males parked next to his vehicle and left the scene feeling that they may be involved in the theft. A short time later, the two suspects ventured into the mall security office looking for a set of lost keys. Needless to say, the incidents were all linked and two 18 year old males from Los Angeles went to jail. The stereo was later recovered.
