Chino Hills – The Chino Hills Police Department responded to a burglary call at a residence in Chino Hills early in the morning on October 30, 2017 on the 2100 block of San Tropez to investigate. When the officers arrived on scene it was determined that a residential burglary had taken place. The Chino Hills Police department immediately started their investigation into burglary but had little evidence to go on at the scene of the crime. Very few leads were produced during the first 48 hours of the investigation but then the victim turned over video surveillance footage that had been taken from inside the garage. The investigators received the video footage on Wednesday the first of November sometime after 4pm and made two arrests within 24 hours of receiving the evidence. The camera recorded 3 suspects in the garage; one of them was in possession of a handgun. It broke the case wide open, Detectives had identified two of the suspects involved in the crime and made the arrests. Mason Weymans who appears to be brandishing the handgun in the video and Patrick Gillins were both arrested and booked into the West Valley Detention Center for a PC459 (Residential Burglary). Both of the suspects are Chino Hills residents and the third suspect seen in the video is still being actively pursued by Chino Hills Police Department Detectives. The Detective will continue to examine and reexamine all the leads concerning this burglary and any other crimes associated with these three suspects.
If anyone has any additional information on these suspects or any crimes they may have been involved in don’t hesitate to call the Chino Hills Police Department with the information. If you wish to remain anonymous please call WeTip at (800) 78-CRIME.
