Recently Claremont Police Department has seen a rise in the number of residential burglaries in the City of Claremont. Many of these burglaries have involved one of the suspects knocking on the front door to see if anyone is home. The suspect(s) will then go to the rear of the home and force open a rear window or door using a pry tool or by smashing a glass window or sliding glass door.
On September 19, 2014, two residential burglaries occurred within one-half mile of each other. The first burglary occurred at around 9:00 AM in the 1200 block of Northwestern Dr. At that time, a witness saw a black female, about 5'10 with a thin build, on the side of the home. The witness knew that the female did not live at the home. The police were not called at that time. The second burglary occurred at around 12:25 PM in the 700 block of West Tenth St. At that time, a witness saw the burglary occur from beginning to end. The witness did not report the crime until after the suspects had fled the area. The suspects were described as a black female and black male and the suspect vehicle was described as a newer, charcoal gray Hyundai Elantra, with dark tinted windows and yellow paper license plates. The witness took a photograph of the suspect vehicle.
The Claremont Police Department urges the public to call the police immediately when suspicious activity is observed. If you have information regarding these suspects and/or vehicle, please contact the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411.
The photo to the right is the suspect vehicle that was seen by a witness.
