Sheriff’s deputies arrested two Rosemead burglary suspects and sought a third Thursday following a search of a neighborhood in San Gabriel, authorities said.
A man in his 30s and a teenage boy were arrested on suspicion of residential burglary, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Julian Salcido said. A third suspect eluded capture.
A resident of the 8500 block of Olney Street in Rosemead reported seeing someone going into the back yard of a neighbor’s house about 11:30 a.m., the lieutenant said.
Arriving deputies saw a vehicle leaving the area and followed it as it went a short distance west on the 10 Freeway, then exited at San Gabriel Boulevard, officials said.
Three suspects jumped from the car near San Gabriel Boulevard and Marshall Street and ran, Salcido said. One was captured within minutes, the other was arrested about three hours later during a search of the area.
Deputies were unable to find the third suspect and called off the search shortly after 4 p.m.
The name of the adult suspect in custody was not available pending booking.
