Grandview Ave. Home Ransacked

A Sierra Madre home in the 500 block of E. Grandview Ave. was burglarized Thursday, according to police.

A Sierra Madre home was broken into on Thursday, according to police.

A resident returned to their home in the 500 block of E. Grandview Ave. at about 12:50 p.m. to find that the front and rear doors had been opened, according to police reports.

The resident called 911 and arrived on the scene in about two minutes.

"The entire house was ransacked," said Sergeant Joe Ortiz. Police set up a perimeter to search for suspects, but none were found.

Police estimate that about $100 worth of property was lost, though it's not known exactly what was taken from the home at this point.

Police are currently investigating the break-in, said Ortiz.

Did they send those two police union reps to pose for another photo opportunity?

Are you not proud enough of your snide comments to use your real name? What are you, twelve? You're entitied to your opinion but at least have the guts to put your name to the useless comments you make. Seriously lame.

Christine, you beat me to the punch. What a couple of cowards these two are. VFD never has anything too intelligent to say. Don't know about Lay Z Cop. Haven't seen that name before and I hope I won't again.

Sadly, it seems, the registration requirements that are stipulated in the "Our Terms of Use" statement for Sierra Madre Patch are no longer applicable? I refer specifically to this stated requirement: "Patch believes in transparency, and we ask that all your registration information be truthful. You may not use any aliases or other means to mask your true identity." If the rules have changed then those changes should be reflected in the Terms of Use. If they haven't changed then they should be enforced. Period.

in stead of making fun of people, why don't we get our neighborhood watch UP!?? i know we don't know what every truck or car is supposed to be at someones home, but as neighbors, we need to be more alert, listen for noises. if something bothers you call 355-1414! let the police investigate.... this incident happened in a few minutes, i feel terrible for the poor woman that walked into her home destroyed......
