Eighteen break ins have happened to Chinese American households along the 10 and 710 freeways since July 1st. The Alhambra Police Department called the World Journal to get out word about the crimes. According to the police, Chinese American households are targeted because they often store jewelry and cash at home. The theft ring usually takes action when house owners leave windows open and go to work during the day.
