Three teenagers were arrested recently, suspected of breaking into a snack bar at Manooshian Park’s Henderson Field, stealing a number of items.

The burglaries occurred overnight between June 5 and 6. Two male teens reportedly used a crowbar to open the secured metal doors to the snack bar and stole about $200 and also stole candy and gift cards, said Glendora Detective Zack Houser.

The same suspects returned overnight between June 6 and 7 in an attempt to commit the same crime, but were unsuccessful.

Altogether, three teens, ages 13, 14 and 15, were arrested.

Authorities investigated information from anonymous sources that led them first to a 13-year-old male suspect who was on probation. The officer performed a compliance check and then learned about the additional two suspects, Houser said.

About $43 from the stolen cash was found on one of the arrested teens and recovered. The rest of the cash has not been located. The gift cards were likely spent by the suspects and the candy was also not recovered, Houser said.

Glendora City News helped procure a $500 donation from a husband and wife from Azusa whose children had previously played at Henderson Field. The donation helped to recoup the $200 stolen, as well as pay for the door repairs, which totaled $300.

All three suspects were released back to their guardians and given citations.
