PASADENA — Police jailed three suspects Wednesday on suspicion of breaking into two Pasadena homes, authorities said.
Andre Norwood, 21, of Inglewood, Cedric horn, 20, of Los Angeles and Dajuan Bryson, 23, of Los Angeles were booked for burglary, Pasadena police Lt. Pete Hettema said.
A resident in the 400 block of South Grand Avenue called police to report something suspicious, the lieutenant said. The neighbor watched as two men rang the doorbell of a neighbor’s home, then of them went around the back while the other remained in the front.
It was later determined that the men had broken a window in the rear of the home, but were apparently frightened off by a burglary alarm, Hettema said.
By the time police arrived at the Grand Avenue call, the intruders had fled, but the witness was able to give police a good description of their vehicle, police said.
About 20 minutes later, Hettema said, a resident called police from the 100 block of West State Street reporting another break-in. This time, the intruders left the home with a pillowcase stuffed with jewelry.
Police found two of the suspects on foot in the area and arrested them after brief foot chases, officials said. The third suspect was spotted driving by South Pasadena police, pulled over and arrested.
