LA CRESCENTA — Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a link between four La Crescenta men arrested in Pasadena last week and a string of vehicle burglaries in Crescenta Valley.
Pasadena police arrested Jeffrey Morquecho, Sean Marshall, Adrian Bernhardt — all 18 — and Brent Gorman, 24, July 9 on suspicion of grand theft, vehicle burglary and evading an officer.
According to Pasadena Police Lt. Chris Russ, a motorcycle officer saw Morquecho fail to stop at a red light.
The officer pulled the white 2007 Toyota Camry over into a parking lot near Fair Oaks and California avenues.
“As the officer got off his motorcycle, the vehicle drove away,” Russ said.
After a brief pursuit, the vehicle pulled over. Morquecho stayed by the car while the other three fled. The three were captured and arrested a short time later, Russ said.
