During the investigation, items of jewelry, a laptop, 28 cell phones, narcotic paraphernalia, burglary tools, identification and a passport in other names, and additional property was found in the car. The officers believed the majority of these items to be stolen property and were able to identify some items as being taken in a recent auto burglary in a nearby city. Christopher A. Duarte, a 28-year-old Upland man, and Christine L. Beyers, a 35-year-old Rosemead woman, were both arrested and booked at the Arcadia City Jail on felony charges and warrants. (Christine L.

Weekly Tip - Host or Join Neighborhood Watch

Image
Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens together with law enforcement to deter crime and make communities safer.  Neighborhood Watch can trace its roots back to the days of colonial settlements, when night watchmen patrolled the streets. The modern version of Neighborhood Watch was developed in response to requests from sheriffs and police chiefs who were looking for a crime prevention program that would involve citizens and address an increasing number of burglaries.     Launched in 1972, Neighborhood Watch counts on citizens to organize themselves and work with law enforcement to keep a trained eye and ear on their communities, while demonstrating their presence at all times of day and night. Give Community Service Officer Mike Vercillo a call and ask about joining your local neighborhood watch. Or, consider hosting a neighborhood meeting if there is not an established group near you.
