South Pasadena Police Department Crime Report

A ring was reported stolen near Oxley Street and Milan Avenue at about 12:05 p.m. on Feb. 10 after a man and woman drove up to a pedestrian offering to give them a necklace and a red envelope as a gift for Lunar New Year. After the woman exited the vehicle to distract the victim by asking for directions, the man took the ring from the victim’s finger. Both suspects fled in the vehicle, a four-door white sedan. The man was described as a 20-year-old with dark hair, and the woman was described as a 20-year-old with black shoulder-length hair. Both suspects were wearing dark-colored clothing.

Officers responded to an indecent exposure call near Arroyo Boulevard and the 110 Freeway at 10 a.m. on Feb. 11. When police arrived, the suspect was not exposing himself. However, the man was found in possession of unlawful drug paraphernalia and burglary tools. The suspect, a 37-year-old Downey man, was arrested.

A fraud was reported to police for a transaction that occurred between Feb. 5 and Feb. 9. The victim told police that after they listed a camera for sale on an internet auction site, the suspect contacted them and agreed to purchase the item. Later, the suspect claimed to have sent the payment twice and asked the victim to refund half the payment. The victim agreed and mailed the refund to the suspect, but eventually discovered the suspect never sent the payment. The victim’s losses include the camera, as well as the money sent through the mail.

These alleged crimes and incidents were reported to the South Pasadena Police Department between Tuesday, Feb. 6, and Monday, Feb. 12. Information was gathered from a weekly crime summary published by SPPD’s Crime Prevention Unit.
