A Glendale man and his sister were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of multiple vehicle burglaries, identify theft, legal obstruction and destruction of evidence, police said Wednesday.
The arrests of 30-year-old Sevak Vardumyan and his 24-year-old sister Linda Vardumyan took place on Dec. 4, according to Glendale police and Los Angeles County jail records.
Glendale Sgt. Dan Suttles said police were able to connect a vehicle burglary report taken on Nov. 24 with security camera footage of the incident that led them to identify the brother as the suspect. They then began further investigation and obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence, where evidence was found that allegedly tied the man to multiple car burglaries in Glendale, Burbank and Los Angeles.
Detectives also said they discovered evidence of alleged identity theft.
The older sibling was then taken into custody and booked on charges of vehicle burglary, possession of stolen property and identity theft, Suttles said.
The man’s sister, who lives with her brother, was also arrested on suspicion of obstructing officers and the destruction of evidence when she allegedly threw evidence of her brother’s crimes out a second story window.
Sevak Vardumyan posted $20,000 bond and was released the evening of his arrest; Linda Vardumyan posted a $10,000 bond and was also released the night of her arrest, according to jail records.
