Detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect wanted in connection with cat burglaries that occurred in the area of 10th Street and Redondo Avenue over the last three weeks.
From January 23, 2006, to February 1, 2006 there were six reported incidents involving cat burglaries, loitering and peeking, reported in the area of 10th Street and Redondo Avenue. A cat burglary is a burglary that occurs while the resident is at home.
Through evidence collected, a suspect has been identified as Cruz Aguirre. Aguirre is described as a Hispanic Male, 19 years old, 5’7”, 150 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes.
Detectives are still looking into whether all the crimes are connected. In a number of the cat burglaries the suspect entered through an unlocked door or window, and Detectives want to remind the public to take the following precautions:
Install effective locks on all doors and windows - and USE them.
During night hours, your entire property (walkways, porches, doorways garages, car ports, etc.) should be well lit.
- Trim trees and shrubs near your doors and windows.
- If you come home and find a door or window open or any signs of forced entry - don't go in! Go to the nearest phone and call the police.
If anyone knows where suspect Aguirre is, they are asked to call 9-1-1. Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call Detective Louie Galvan in the Sex Crimes Detail at (562) 570-7368.
