Four homes in east Altadena neighborhoods were hit by burglars on Monday, according to Lt. Joe Dempsey of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Altadena Station.
All four were entered by force in the daytime hours, according to Dempsey.
He told Altadena Patch that it appears they were related.
"It seems like [they were related], because they are all pretty close," Dempsey said.
The burglarized home locations are:
- 2000 Block of E. Crary Street
- 1400 Block of Coolidge Avenue
- 1700 Block of Roosevelt Avenue
- 2300 Block of Sinaloa Avenue
The department does not have any witnesses or suspect descriptions at this time, Dempsey added.
In some of the cases, residents were not out of the homes for that long when the crime happened - one victim told police he was only gone for about an hour.
