Updated: Two Homes Burglarized, Two Suspects Still at Large

Two homes were burglarized in San Marino Wednesday and suspects tried to break into a third home. One of the suspects was taken into custody but police are still looking for two other suspects.

Police are still looking for the two suspects at large, San Marino Sergeant Aaron Blonde told Patch Friday. No other burglaries have been reported in San Marino as of Friday morning.

While DNA evidence can be tested to identify the suspects, it is the last option since it can take a "great deal of time" to receive DNA test results for property crimes since crimes committed against people, like homicide, take priority, said Blonde.

The California Boulevard burglary loss included $16,000 in jewelery, including high-end watches, and a camera and camcorder. A window was smashed to gain entry to the home.

The Shenandoah Road burglary loss included a Kindle, which was recovered in one of the suspect's cars, and possibly additional loss such as cash.
