It was Sunday morning, January 14, 2018, when at approximately 12:38 a.m., Chino Hills deputies were dispatched to investigate a suspicious person call from a citizen in the 13000 block of Monteverde Drive. When the deputies arrived, three male juveniles spotted the deputies and quickly fled from them. Deputies immediately set up a perimeter and initiated a search of the surrounding area and residences. Additional deputies and an airship from the Sheriff’s Department Aviation Division were dispatched to help conduct a thorough and complete search of the surrounding area. During the search two of the male juveniles were found hiding in the vegetation between two houses. A third male juvenile was found hiding in a nearby unreported stolen vehicle. All three juveniles were from Pasadena; they were arrested and taken into custody.
Further investigation led to evidence located at the scene that revealed the juveniles had committed a residential burglary and a vehicle theft in Pasadena that was unreported at the time of their arrest in Chino Hills. They drove the stolen vehicle to Chino Hills to in an apparent to commit another residential burglary.
If anybody has any additional information in relation to either of these incidents, you are urged to contact the Chino Hills Police Station at (909) 364-2000. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call WeTip at 800 78-CRIME.
