Teen girls suspected in Pasadena burglary

PASADENA — Police arrested one teenage girl Tuesday and sought another in connection with a home burglary, officials said.
A woman answered a knock at her door in the 1300 block of Mentone Avenue about 10 a.m. to find two teenage girls, Pasadena police Lt. Rick Aversano said.
The girls asked for an unknown person and left when they were told no such person lived there, the lieutenant said.
The woman went to work and returned home around 4 p.m. to find her home ransacked, Aversano said, and she recalled the suspicious visit by the teenage girls.
An investigating police officer recognized the description of one of the girls from previous experiences and investigators were able to find her, Aversano said. Jewelry taken from the Mentone Avenue home was found in the 14-year-old suspect’s home.
Police continued to seek the second teen girl suspected in the crime, officials said.
