Burglary suspect arrested in Arcadia

ARCADIA — Police arrested an 18-year-old Arcadia man late Saturday on suspicion of breaking into a home, authorities said.
Warren Drakos was booked on suspicion of burglary, Arcadia police Sgt. Tom Le Veque said in a written statement.
A man and his son heard their garage door open about 11:45 p.m. in the 800 block of South Third Avenue and went to investigate, the sergeant said.
The man and son, “confronted a male suspect standing inside the garage, next to the open door of the resident’s car.” Le Veque said. The teenage suspect then ran away, as the homeowner immediately called police.
Officers found Drakos in the area and detained him.
“While detaining the suspect, an officer at the victim residence called the victim’s cell phone, which rang in the bag that the suspect was carrying,” Le Veque said.
Warren was found to be in possession of the victim’s cell phone, as well as other property taken from the home, and other items possible stolen in other incidents, police said.
Drakos apparently got into the garage by taking a garage door opener remote from a vehicle that was parked in front of the residence, Le Veque added.
According to sheriff’s booking records, Drakos was being held in lieu of $51,000 bail and was due for arraignment Wednesday in Pasadena Superior Court.
