UPDATE: Police searching for Suspected Prowler

Man was seen running through yards after allegedly fleeing from Sheriffs patrol car.

Glendora Police are continuing to search for a suspected prowler in the 900 block of East Ada Avenue after the man allegedly fled from a Sheriff's deputy.

Police were called over an hour ago to the 900 block of East Ada after the caller reported seeing a man run when a Sheriff's patrol car was in the neighborhood, according to scanner reports.

The man, described as White, in his 20s or 30s wearing a white shirt, black baseball hat, jeans and tattoos, reportedly ran through numerous yards. The suspect also had a bicycle in his possession and threw it down before he ran.

Police right now believe the suspect may be in a house in the 900 block of East Myrtle Avenue. Glendora Police have a K-9 unit on scene.

UPDATE: Glendora Police have arrested the suspect implicated in the prowler reports throughout residences along East Walnut, East Ada and East Myrtle avenues between Elwood and Lorraine, according to scanner reports.

The suspect was arrested after emerging from a home in the 900 block of East Myrtle. A Sheriff's Department helicopter was above the scene. The homeowner told officers the suspect was in his home and was allegedly uncooperative with officers at first.

Glendora Police reported that the San Dimas Sheriff's Station had no deputies in the area at the time and deny having been involved with the suspect. The Los Angeles County Parks Police also denies being in the area during the first call.

This story will continue to be updated as information becomes available.

Mystery? What is a sheriff vehicle doing in Glendora unless he lives here. Our Glendora Police Department is so impressive! They catch just about all of the 'Bad Guys" right a way! The Helicopter was very impressive. They were so low that we could read the id number on the bottom of the aircraft...... Again, Glendorians, we are so very lucky to have the coverage we have.......

Karen, some areas of Glendora are considered county areas and are patrolled by the San Dimas Sheriffs Dept. I am unsure if that area the incident was reported in is considered county, but I don't believe so. I am planning on writing a follow up story later on today.
