Altadena Deputies Prevent Burglary and two persons are arrested.
On Thursday at 3:31pm Altadena Sheriff's received a call of two persons seen possibly trying to break into a house in the 2000 block of Midwick Drive of Altadena. Deputies responded to Midwick Dr., and as they were arriving in the area a vehicle was seen quickly leaving the area. It was believed the possible burglars are in that vehicle and trying to escape capture.
Deputies called for a helicopter as soon as the call was dispatched, and soon after the helicopter arrived overhead the vehicle was spotted south of Midwick Dr. Deputies pulled behind the vehicle and turned on their red/blue lights and the vehicles pulled over. Just as the vehicle stopped, two persons jumped out the vehicle, ran in different directions, and a third person stayed inside.
Shortly after the call was dispatched, Altadena station detectives, sergeants and operations staff had raced into east Altadena to help catch the suspects. After the suspects tried splitting up, running away, and hiding from the helicopter within several minutes they were both caught. The male and female adult suspects are facing several serious charges including carjacking.
We thank the quick thinking community members who spotted the pair of potential burglary suspects and called our station. #arrested #caught #LASD #Altadena
