In the week since Claremont Police authorities announced the arrest of three men suspected of burglarizing a home, Chamber of Commerce officials are putting out warnings of three more burglaries at local businesses.
The chamber, which works to keep its merchants informed on crimes reported on its Facebook page by police and fellow businesses, is getting the word out about a Feb. 5 burglary at a Chevron gas station.
According to reports, authorities were called at 4:16 a.m. to the gas station and mini-mart at 267 S. Indian Hill Boulevard on a call of an audible alarm. Claremont officers found the front glass door to the business smashed in and cartons of cigarettes stolen, according to Chamber officials.
The suspect was described only as a man in all black clothing, a black baseball hat and had a bandana covering his face.
Five days before that, on Jan. 31 at 2:46 a.m., Chamber officials warn that three unknown suspects pried open the front door at the Wolfe’s Market, 160 W. Foothill Boulevard.
Thieves reportedly stole a safe, loading it into a white late model four-door vehicle, officials said. The suspects were wearing light colored sweat suits and masks, according to the Chamber warning.
Three burglars were arrested Jan. 30 after a resident reported they had broken into her home while she was inside, according to a Claremont Police news release.
Officials ask anyone with information on the either crime to call the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411.
