Vehicles Vandalized In Glendora, San Dimas

Four vehicles were vandalized in Glendora Wednesday night, two of which were the apparent result of an attempted burglary, police said.

Local law enforcement agencies are reporting a series of vehicle vandalism and attempted burglaries, a few occurring in close proximity to each other.

Police are investigating four window smashes to vehicles, while deputies are investigating similar reports of vehicle vandalism in nearby San Dimas.

Two vehicles were reportedly shot with a pellet gun in the Walmart parking lot late Wednesday night. The incident was reported to officers at 10:12 p.m. and was initially believed to be a burglary, although it appeared nothing was taken from the two vehicles, said Lieutenant Joe Ward.

The second incident in Glendora was reported at 10:40 p.m., where a resident reportedly saw two vehicles being broken into in a carport at an apartment complex in the 600 block of South Pasadena Avenue. The caller alleged one of the suspects brandished a weapon before the two fled without any property, Ward said.

However, the caller remained anonymous to officers, making investigating the claims of a weapon more difficult, Ward said.

Some time after the Walmart incident, one vehicle was reportedly vandalized in San Dimas in the area of Wildrose Lane and Foothill Blvd. The window was smashed to a vehicle, but it was not immediately known how it was smashed, or if anything was taken, said Lieutenant Diana Gealta of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

There were no descriptions of suspects in any of the incidents.

These recent incidents come off the heels of a reported vehicle burglary witnessed on Sunflower Avenue north of Arrow Highway, Oct. 29. The late night incident was witnessed by a passerby who saw a man rifling through a vehicle, a crowbar and broken glass lay on the street near the vehicle.

The same night, deputies informed Glendora officers of several vehicle burglaries in that area in recent days.

Is it just me or is S Pasadena Ave a constant source of burglaries?
