South Pasadena Police Apprehend Suspects in Stolen Vehicle

South Pasadena police officers responded to the area of Fremont Avenue and Monterey Road after receiving a Flock Safety camera notification for a wanted vehicle on Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 1:29 a.m.
Flock cameras are automated license plate readers placed in strategic areas of the city, capturing license plate information. The ALPR technology enables police dispatch to relay real-time information to patrol officers in the field.
Officers located the vehicle, a 2018 silver Honda Accord, which, along with a firearm, had been stolen in the city of Palmdale. The driver of the vehicle, a 21-year-old man, and the passenger, a 22-year-old man, were arrested without incident.
During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered black ski masks and burglary tools, further implicating the individuals in potential criminal activities. Both suspects were booked and released from the Alhambra City Jail.
The investigation has been handed over to detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Palmdale Station, who will continue investigating the circumstances surrounding the stolen vehicle and firearm.
The South Pasadena Police Department remains committed to utilizing cutting-edge technology and collaborative efforts to ensure the safety and security of the community.
Anyone with additional information about this incident is urged to call the SPPD at (626) 403-7270. To provide an anonymous tip, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
