I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Suspects may have burglarized as many as 10 Alhambra homes since April

Police believe that three Alhambra homes, and possibly as many as 10, have been burglarized by the same suspects since the beginning of April. 
The suspects were caught on camera during one of their break-in attempts in the 100 block of South Meridian Avenue, according to the Pasadena Star-News. During the break-in the suspects disabled the home’s security alarm before entering the house. No one was home at the time of the incident.
The three suspects are described as African-American males in their late teens to early twenties. One suspect is believe to have a goatee. They “are targeting single family homes in the late afternoon and evening hours,” the APD wrote in a press release. The suspects are believed to be driving a dark-colored sedan, possibly an older model Honda Accord.
The Pasadena Star-News and Fox 11 have footage from the video.
Residents are advised to call Detective Jack Ng of the APD at (626) 570-5187 if they have any information. Callers will be granted anonymity.

  1. So where are the Alhambra Police to protect us; I live in the area but have not seen any increase in police patrol, and why was it necessary to receive this information from the Pasadena Star-News through the Alhambra Source, instead of from our police department and the city council, putting our warnings to us, the residents in the area; after all Councilman Amaya lives nearby, why has he done nothing to alert us, to have increase police protection? As usual the city of Alhambra, City Council, Police Department are asleep in their duties (too busy granting permits for more dense buildings, using city resources to promote completion of the 710)
