Two arrested on suspicion of breaking into car at Evey Canyon parking lot
Claremont police arrested two people Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of breaking into cars at Evey Canyon.
Roy Hernandez, a 30-year-old Montebello resident, and Monique Delgado, a 25-year-old Cypress resident, were apprehended after Mr. Hernandez tried to run away from police on foot through a north Upland neighborhood, according to Sgt. David DeMetz of the Claremont Police Department.
A Claremont officer patrolling the area around 1:45 p.m. noticed a parked vehicle with its window smashed and a Toyota 4Runner leaving the scene at a high rate of speed.
The officer caught up to the 4Runner at 24th Street and Belleview Road in Upland and tried to detain Mr. Hernandez and Ms. Delgado, but Mr. Hernandez fled on foot through residential yards, Sgt. DeMetz said.
A perimeter was established with the help of Claremont and Upland officers, the San Gabriel Valley AB109 task force and a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department helicopter, Sgt. DeMetz said. Mr. Hernandez was eventually found hiding in a nearby yard and was taken into custody.
Claremont officers determined that the parked car at Evey Canyon had been burglarized and stolen items from the car were found in the 4Runner. A stolen handgun was also found in the Toyota, Sgt. DeMetz said.
Mr. Hernandez was arrested for burglary, conspiracy, possession of a stolen firearm, resisting arrest and for having four outstanding warrants. Ms. Delgado was arrested for burglary, conspiracy and committing a felony while on bail for another crime.
Mr. Hernandez’s bail was set at $160,000 while Ms. Delgado’s bail was set at $20,000. They will both be arraigned at Pomona Superior Court on Friday, December 22.
