From the Monrovia Police Department:

On January 18 at 6:21 p.m., a female called to report her daughter was suicidal and had threatened to hang herself. Officers arrived and searched the location for the suicidal subject, but she was not at the home. During the search for the daughter, a large cache of cameras and other electronics was found. A female subject who was at the location was found to have a warrant for receiving stolen property. While she was being taken into custody, the suicidal subject returned home. She was taken to a hospital and held for a 72-hour mental evaluation. Due to the volume of property at the location, a search warrant was obtained. Another male subject who was wanted by the Burbank Police Department for receiving stolen property showed up at the location. He was also arrested. The search warrant for the location was served and resulted in the recovery of a large amount of stolen property taken in burglaries from across the Los Angeles area: Hollywood, Walnut, Chino Hills, and Hacienda Heights.

Subsequent investigation indicated more stolen property was in a storage facility in the name of the female taken into custody days before. The storage facility was located in the city of West Covina and another search warrant was obtained for that location. The second search warrant resulted in the recovery of another large quantity of stolen property. The recovered property was more than what could be processed and contained at the Monrovia Police Department. Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives assisted with the case and are processing the recovered property. Investigation by Los Angeles County Sheriff detectives has indicated that many of the victims of these suspects were individuals who had placed themselves on the Los Angeles Times vacation list. These victims were subsequently burglarized and are encouraged to contact Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Detective Jack Jordan at (562) 946-7893. Victims should be prepared to supply the police report
number from the burglary and a description of the items stolen.
