Each week, we will post an arrest of interest pointing toward arrest and crime trends within Arcadia. This past week, our bait program helped nab 7 folks in three separate events for felony theft incidents, including both the bait bikes and packages. One case is described below:
About 1:30 a.m. last Sunday morning, a bait package was taken from a front porch in the 300 block of West Longden Avenue. Officers quickly located the suspects and vehicle still in the area. During the investigation the bait package was found inside the suspect vehicle, along with stolen mail from multiple nearby locations in Arcadia. All four occupants were arrested.
Oscar L. Juarez, 32-year-old male from La Puente, Krista E. Moreno, 32-year-old female from El Monte, Veronica Rendon, 22-year-old female from La Puente, and Noah F. Sargent, 20-year-old male from Whittier were all arrested and booked on felony charges at the Arcadia City Jail. Two of the arrestees are on Post-Release (County-Level) Community Supervision (PRCS).
