The suspects have been identified as two Hispanic male adults, 21 years old Jose Javier Ortiz and 27 years old Alexia Escobar Saldiva from the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles. They posted bond and will be due in court on Jan. 27th and Jan. 28th respectively.

Posted 12.28

Two male suspects have been detained for attempting to steal several bottles of cologne and perfume and leading authorities on a short vehicle pursuit on Saturday morning.

The Alhambra Police Department responded to an alarm call at 5:45am on the 1100 block of South Westminster Avenue. An officer spotted a van backing out of the driveway upon his arrival, according to a statement from the APD’s Facebook page.

The smashed window of the business

The driver fled when he saw the police arrive, which led to a short pursuit that resulted in the van crashing and turning over on Mission Road, west of Stockbridge Avenue. One of the suspects fled on foot and was apprehended. Another suspect was removed from the van.

The police inspected the van and found what appeared to be bottles of cologne and perfume. The business had a smashed window.

The two suspects are in custody on suspicion of commercial burglary and evading arrest.

  1. What bunch of losers. It’s a shame Alhambra attracts losers like this. We don’t need vans crashing into our sidewalks. Someone could have been hurt or killed.
