Police ask for help finding burglary suspects
By Courier staff
Shortly before 4:54 a.m. Wednesday, October 5, the owner of Wine & Liquor Market at 750 S. Indian Hill Boulevard called the Claremont Police Department to report he was watching a live feed from his surveillance cameras that showed two suspects burglarizing his store.
Officers responded immediately, but the suspects had fled, and a search of the area did not bear fruit.
Police then reviewed the surveillance footage, and say it showed two suspects use a Sawzall tool to cut through the store’s front security gate, then smash the front glass door with an unknown object. Once inside, they stole an unknown amount of cash from the registers, then ran out the front door to a car parked nearby on San Jose Avenue.
Police are looking for two men, 5 foot 8 inches to 6 feet tall, of average build, who were both wearing dark hooded sweatshirts, face masks, gloves and dark colored pants.
If you have any information about this crime, or are a local resident or business owner with video surveillance cameras that may have captured images of the two suspects or their car, please contact the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411.
