Video from a home security system helped nab a suspect who was seen riding away on a bike from a burglary at a residence in La Canada Flintridge, authorities said Saturday.
Deputies received a call at about 6 p.m. Friday of a burglary in progress in the 200 block of Baptiste Way, where a homeowner reported seeing a suspect on the property via a home security system, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Crescenta Valley station.
The homeowner also reported seeing the suspect leave the home on a bicycle.
A deputy responded to the scene and found a person matching the suspect’s description on Alveo and Viro roads. He was detained without incident.
“The investigation revealed the person … detained was the suspect in the video,” sheriff’s officials said. “The suspect also had a warrant for his arrest. He was booked at the Crescenta Valley station for burglary and his warrant.”
