Los Angeles County Sheriffs from Crescenta Valley Station received a call concerning a possible burglary at 10 a.m. this morning (Wednesday) in the 5500 block of Rock Castle Drive in La Cañada.
“We had a burglary in progress,” said Lt. Bill Jaeger.
Deputies responded in about a minute, according to Jaeger.
“We detained and arrested one suspect,” Jaeger said.
A second suspect was able to escape the area. LASD searched the area.
“We believe he made his way into the mountains. We followed trails for quite some distance,” he said.
The LASD K9 unit was deployed as well as air support; however, presently the suspect is still outstanding. Deputies did recover a vehicle believed to belong to the suspects.
Deputies advised residents via overhead announcements within the area to stay inside their home. During the search deputies searched several homes of concerned residents who had left the doors to their homes unlocked.
The search continues as of 2:35 p.m. Anyone who sees anything or anyone suspicious is asked to call 911.
The outstanding suspect is described as a male black, thin build, about 6′ tall.
