The Alhambra Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a crew of residential burglars that have been victimizing residents in Alhambra.
 
Since April 1, 2016, Alhambra has seen 14 residential burglaries. Alhambra Police Department Detectives believe that at least three and possibly as many as ten of these burglaries have been committed by the same individuals. On one of the recent break-ins, in the western portion of Alhambra, the homeowner’s security cameras caught the suspects as they began to break into the home. The suspects disabled the home alarm system but the closed circuit cameras were able to record the suspects in the rear yard of the house just prior to making entry.   There was no one home at the time of the incident and no one was hurt.
 
This burglary is similar to other burglaries in the area. The suspects are targeting single family homes in the late afternoon and evening hours. On at least two occasions, the suspects have disabled the home alarm system.  All three suspects are described as African American males in their late teens to early twenties, 5’ 08” to 5’ 10’ with thin builds.  One suspect is known to have a distinct goatee. The suspects are known to use a dark colored sedan, possibly an older Honda Accord. 
 
If anyone has any information that may help police, they are encouraged to call Detective Jack Ng at (626) 570-5187.
