Arrest/Crime Trends - "Knock Knock" Burglary Suspect Wanted

We have posted about the ongoing fight to curb residential burglary in the area. One trend is the "knock knock" burglary where suspects look to find a home where the resident is away by knocking at the front door. When no one answers, the suspect most often makes their way to a secluded portion of the home and makes entry. In some cases, residents will have video evidence and pictures of the suspects. Video cameras and doorbell cameras are great tools as a deterrent in helping to prevent crime and as an investigative tool in many instances. If you have cameras, make sure to take advantage of immediate notifications to your cell phone if the equipment has this feature.

On September 1st, a "knock knock" burglary was committed in the 100 block of West Camino Real Avenue, Arcadia. The female suspect knocked at the front door and ultimately forced entry to the residence by breaking a rear window. The suspect ransacked the master bedroom and left the location in a silver 4-door vehicle.
