During the overnight hours of February 9, La Palma Police Officers were conducting surveillance of several businesses in the Centerpointe complex due to recent thefts and burglaries. One of the burglaries occurred at the Beacon Day School, and the other occurred at an office that was currently undergoing renovations. In both burglaries, several thousand dollars of tools and equipment were taken by the suspects. 

At around 2:30 a.m., an officer noticed two subjects attempting to siphon gasoline from a van belonging to the Beacon Day School. Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle as it left the area. Officers searched the vehicle and located stolen property and other evidence linking the suspects to the previous burglaries. Further investigation led to the discovery of a significant amount of stolen tools and equipment located at the suspect’s residences Whittier. All of the property was recovered and later returned to the owners. 

Both suspects were arrested and booked on charges of Theft and Possession of Stolen Property. Detectives are conducting further investigation to determine if the suspects are responsible for additional crimes in the area.
