Azusa police recover $5,000 worth of suspected stolen property; 2 arrested

AZUSA — Police jailed a man and woman in Azusa Friday in connection with a string of burglaries and recovered more than $5,000 worth of suspected stolen property, authorities said.
Raymundo Nares, 36, of Azusa, and Jennifer Jennings, 21, of Covina were booked on suspicion of receiving stolen property, Azusa police Lt. Sam Fleming said. Nares was also booked for an outstanding warrant for petty theft with a prior conviction, and Jennings was also booked on suspicion of possession of narcotics paraphernalia.
A police officer stopped a car being driven by Jennings about 10:30 a.m in the 17600 block of Renwick Street, Azusa police Sgt. John Madaloni said in a written statement.
Two male passengers fled from the car and were not found, he said.
Nares and Jennings were detained in the car, where police found some methamphetamine and a pipe, police said.
Allegedly stolen property including jewelry, sports memorabilia, computer equipment and financial documents were also found in the car, Madaloni said. The items were linked to a residential burglary that occurred about two weeks prior in the 2500 block of Cameron Avenue in an unincorporated county area near Covina.
A search of Jennings’ Azusa storage locker revealed even more suspected stolen goods, police said, including model train equipment, a stamp collection and a collection of antique dolls.
Officials are now working to find the rightful owners of the allegedly stolen stuff, Madaloni said.
Anyone who’s had similar property stolen in the area recently is asked to contact Detective Brandon Saenz at 626-812-3227.
