A19-year-old man is expected to be arraigned Friday on charges that he and another man allegedly broke into a home, stole what they could, then ran through several backyards and tried to dump bags containing jewelry, police said.
FOR THE RECORD: This corrects an earlier version that stated both suspects were taken into custody.
John Livingston was taken into custody just about 12:30 p.m. Thursday on suspicion of burglary after police found him running down a neighborhood street, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
Police are still searching for the second man, who was identified as Brian Gonzalez.
The pair has family ties to Sunland and Tujunga, but they mostly reside in motels, Lorenz said. Police investigators said they were staying at the Glen Capri Inn on San Fernando Road in Glendale.
On Thursday, residents notified police about a possible burglary in the area of Sierra Vista and Arlington avenues because they had seen and heard two men running through their backyards, Lorenz said.
