Police search Monrovia home for possible burglar

MONROVIA – Police surrounded and searched a home for a possible burglary Friday but ultimately came up empty-handed, officials said.
The incident began about 3 p.m. when officers responded to a burglary alarm at a home in the 600 block of Almond Avenue, Monrovia police Lt. Michael Lee said.
On arrival, officers saw the open front door of the home close and heard what sounded like footsteps, the lieutenant said.
Believing an intruder may still be inside the home, officers surrounded it and ordered anyone inside to come out for about three hours, he said. Ultimately, officers entered and searched the home, finding no one inside.
Lee said police were still waiting to speak with the homeowner late Friday to determine what, if anything, had been stolen from the house.
