Deputies arrested five people Saturday after a neighbor witnessed suspicious-looking activity at a vacant home.
The neighbor reportedly witnessed two of the five suspects hop over a fence to a vacant home in the 2900 block of Gertrude Avenue around 6:35 p.m., said Lt. Angela Shepherd of the
Deputies arrived and witnessed two of the suspects fleeing the home, she said. Both fleeing suspects were found and arrested.
One suspect was apparently found fleeing near Harmony Place at La Crescenta Avenue, according to scanner reports. The other three suspects were found in the home.
The two fleeing suspects may have had warrants, Shepherd said.
All five were arrested on reasonable suspicion of burglary. The home was empty and had no furniture inside at the time. Authorities are still trying to figure out why the suspects were there.
"They are not arrested under the full charge of burglary. It's a reasonable cause burglary. We have to have a little more evidence," Shepherd said. "We have to find out exactly what went on in there."
The names of all five suspects are being withheld until further investigation.
