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.
As Claremont residents hustled to work on Wednesday, burglars made a sweep of 3 local homes. A home in the 2100 block of Oxford Avenue was the first target, broken into around 10 a.m. while an elderly man was home. The victim described the burglar as a white or Hispanic male about 20-30 years old with brown hair.
Another residence was broken into between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the 2200 block of Indian Hill Boulevard.
On Thursday, August 22 a trio’s recent crime spree has officially come to an end thanks to the help of an employee at Hotel Casa 425. The employee recognized 25-year-old Roxanne Golchini, checking into the hotel on Thursday morning, as the same individual wanted for fraudulent charges made at several Village businesses over the past month. The 40-year-old Bernard Hernandez was the only one in the room when police arrived as he was attempting to escape the room like they do in the movies.
