Home burglaries yield big payday for thieves
On Friday, January 6 thousands of dollars in goods were stolen from two homes on north Claremont. In one house, on the 1700 block of Sumner Avenue, burglars entered through an unlocked sliding glass door and ransacked the home, making off with $15,000 worth of jewelry and Taiwanese currency. Burglars entered a second home on the 4300 block of Via Padova by shattering the rear sliding glass door. Approximately $11,000 worth of jewelry and currency was taken, according to Cpl. Reyes. Both burglaries happened between 10 a.m. and 9:45 p.m.
On the same day, around 6:30 p.m., a resident was home on the 2200 block of Grand Avenue when they heard someone trying to break the rear sliding glass door. The resident yelled and the suspect retreated to a sedan parked on Grand Avenue. There is no description of the suspect.
