Parolee Arrested, Found In Possession of Stolen Credit Cards

After a brief foot chase early Sunday morning, Glendora Police officers arrested a parolee after he reportedly attempted to use stolen credit cards at a bank.

A patrolling officer witnessed a suspicious man crouched near the City Bank ATMs, 401 E. Arrow Highway, at 1:30 a.m. The man fled the approaching officer and attempted to evade on foot, said Sgt. Marty Barrett of Glendora Police.

Barrett revealed the suspicious man was in possession of stolen credit cards that he was attempting to use at the ATM. During the foot chase, the suspect ditched the stolen cards.

“While he was running, he throwing the stolen credit cards, trying to get rid of them, but we found them,” Barrett said.

The officer eventually caught the fleeing suspect and detained him about 100 to 200 yards north of City Bank on the shopping center property.

Arrested was Job Alonzo, 34, booked on suspicion of identity theft, fraudulent use of an access card, resisting arrest, receiving known stolen property and violating the terms of his parole.

Alonzo was on parole for assault with a deadly weapon, Barrett said, and is scheduled to appear at the West Covina Courthouse Feb. 18.
