Where there are drugs, there are thieves. Around 2am, officers were arriving on the scene of a call for service, when one of the officers observed a suspicious vehicle (unrelated to the original call) with one subject outside the vehicle looking into another vehicle that was parked. The subject saw the officers and ran to the awaiting vehicle and entered it as it fled the area without its lights on. Two officers stayed with the original call and the observant officer gave chase to the fleeing vehicle. The officer was able to catch up to the vehicle and make a traffic stop. Inside the vehicle were three occupants, multiple burglary tools, carjacks, flashlights, and power tools. Of course, we also located methamphetamine and pipes in the vehicle. This incident occurred in the area of Eighth and Ramona. Jail occupancy plus 3. Have a great morning Alhambra!
