On Sunday, Jan. 7 at approximately 3:30 p.m., the Glendale Police Dept. responded to a commercial burglary in the 500 block of North Glendale Avenue. Preliminary investigation indicates that at least five suspects entered the business.
The suspects proceeded to smash glass cases and remove liquor from cabinets within the establishment. The criminal act resulted in the theft of approximately $2,000 worth of alcohol. The Glendale Police Dept. was not immediately notified and a six-minute lapse occurred between the suspects’ departure and the business reporting the incident to law enforcement.
Once notified, Glendale patrol officers promptly arrived on scene, assessed the situation by reviewing in-store surveillance footage and interviewed witnesses. Surrounding police agencies were notified and provided with a description of the suspects and their vehicle.
Later that evening, law enforcement officers successfully located a vehicle believed to be associated with the suspects. Following a brief pursuit, two suspects were arrested and taken into custody by the Glendale Police Dept.
Arrested were 18-year-old Sean Anthony Wooten of Los Angeles and a juvenile suspect. Both individuals are now facing charges of felony burglary.
