Between December 5 and December 10, four residential burglaries were reported in the northeast area of Claremont north of Base Line Road, according to police. This week, two more incidents were added to those casualties. On Monday, December 16, burglars entered a home in the 700 block of W. 10th Street by prying open a rear door. An estimated $2000 in cash and other property were stolen. The same day, crooks also broke into a home in the 200 block of Lamar Drive.
Burglars made a spree through three of the Claremont Colleges over a 4-day period last week, beginning Friday, September 27 and ending on Monday, September 30. Twice crooks targeted Edmunds Hall on the Pomona College campus. The first attempt was unsuccessful, but on a second round an office was pried open and computer-related items valued at $280 were taken. Check out our complete police blotter coverage Friday.
