Eight hours of searching by police and Sheriff’s deputies yielded the outstanding burglary suspect accused of stealing from two Glendora homes and leading police on a brief chase.
Authorities were able to pinpoint the remaining suspect’s whereabouts to a garage in the 4800 block of Rimhurst Avenue in Covina after the Glendora Police Department’s K9, Bo, caught the suspect’s scent. Police announced that Bo would be deployed and the suspect then yelled out his intention to surrender, said Cpt. Joe Ward of Glendora Police.
The hiding suspect, 30-year-old Jarred Chaney, from Los Angeles, took refuge in the garage through an open door, said Lt. Scott Strong of Glendora Police.
Chaney was arrested around 6:15 p.m. and later booked on suspicion of recklessly evading police, burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime.
The burglary trio of Chaney, 19-year-old Los Angeles resident Jabree McGerew and a 16-year-old male, also from Los Angeles, had burglarized two homes June 25. The first was in the 300 block of West Kirkwall Road. The second home, in the 600 block of East Kirkwall Road, is where police were called to a report of suspicious circumstances, police said.
The teen was apprehended after fleeing the home and leading officers of a brief foot chase.
Officers initiated a brief pursuit on surface streets, with the chase ending in the 4900 block of North Mangrove Avenue. McGerew was apprehended, while Chaney fled westward and hid amongst homes for eight hours.
Property from both burglarized homes was recovered, Strong said.
