On Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at 1:29 am, South Pasadena police officers responded to the area of Fremont Avenue and Monterey Road after receiving a Flock camera notification for a wanted vehicle.
By News Desk
The Flock cameras are automated license plate readers (ALPR) that capture license plate information. The ALPR readers, placed in strategic areas of the city, enable police dispatch to relay real- time information to patrol officers in the field.
Officers located the vehicle, a 2018 Silver Honda Accord, which, along with a firearm, had been stolen from the city of Palmdale. The driver of the vehicle, 21-year- old David Barrera-Guilen of Northridge, and the passenger, 22-year-old Dennis Lopez of Los Angeles, were arrested without incident. During a search of the vehicle, officers discovered black ski masks and burglary tools, further implicating the individuals in potential criminal activities.
Both suspects were booked and released from the Alhambra City Jail. The investigation has been handed over to detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Palmdale Station, who will continue investigating the circumstances surrounding the stolen vehicle and firearm.
Anyone with additional information about this incident is urged to call the South Pasadena Police Department at (626) 403-7270. If you would like to provide an anonymous tip, you can call “Crime Stoppers” at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
