DIAMOND BAR — Two men and a woman suspected of breaking into a Diamond Bar woman’s home Tuesday are behind bars, authorities said Wednesday.
Chaka Thomas, 18, Shaquille O’Neil Gordon, 18, and Monquie Scruggs, 30, all of Los Angeles, were booked on suspicion of residential burglary, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Steven Katz said in a written statement.
A woman in the 20000 block of Gold Run Drive was startled shortly after noon by a burglar who forced open the front door of her house, Katz said.
The intruder fled upon seeing the woman, who was able to provide deputies a description of the suspect and the vehicle he fled in, the lieutenant said.
A deputy spotted a car matching the description nearby and detained Thomas, O’Neil and Scruggs, who were later identified as those responsible for the break-in, Katz said.
According to county booking records, all three suspects were being held in lieu of $50,000 bail each pending their initial court appearances Thursday in Pomona Superior Court.
