Early-morning burglary at Wolfe’s Market
At approximately 3:34 a.m. on Friday, November 13, Claremont police officers responded to Wolfe’s Market, located at 160 W. Foothill Blvd., regarding a burglary in progress.
Suspects had smashed the west glass windows adjacent to the west doors with a large rock and entered the business. Once inside, the suspects stole packs of cigarettes and other small items, which they put in a large duffle bag. After the alarm activated, the suspects fled. As they were fleeing, a grounds keeper confronted them and was threatened with a gun by a male suspect.
The two suspects then fled southbound on Harvard Avenue on foot and got into an unknown vehicle parked on the northwest corner of Twelfth Street and Harvard Avenue. They were last seen heading westbound on Twelfth Street.
The suspects were described as a tall, heavyset male, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and Adidas slip on sandals. The second suspect was described as a female wearing pajama bottoms and a hooded sweatshirt. The crime was captured on the store’s surveillance camera, which officers are reviewing.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation should contact the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411.
