Baldwin Park man arrested following Monrovia burglary

MONROVIA — Police jailed a wanted Baldwin Park man Wednesday after he was confronted by a resident during a residential break-in, authorities said.
Maximino Alejandro Acevedo, 29, was booked on suspicion of burglary as well as outstanding warrants stemming from burglary and narcotics cases, Monrovia police Lt. Michael Lee said.
The break-in took place just before 5 p.m. in the 700 block of Anita Street, police said in a written statement.
A resident noticed a man — later identified as Acevedo — inside his vehicle, which had been left unlocked in an attached garage, police said.
“The victim yelled at the suspect, who ran from the house,” according to the police statement. “The home owner chased the suspect as the police were called, but he lost sight of him.”
Officers caught up with Acevedo a short time later about a quarter-mile away at Mayflower Avenue and Diamond Street, Lee said.
After taking him into custody, the victim positively identified Acevedo as the intruder and he was placed under arrest, officials said.
According to county booking records, Acevedo was being held without bail pending a scheduled appearance Friday in Pasadena Superior Court.
