Police received a report of a burglary in progress on the 300 block of Huntington Avenue at 12:12 p.m. on Wednesday. Witnesses told police they saw the suspects leaving the home on the 300 block of Huntington Avenue with a small safe and other items, Weiserth said.
Police received information the suspects fled the area in a green vehicle.
A police officer spotted individuals exiting a car fitting the suspect vehicle's description near Station Avenue a short time after the Huntington Avenue burglary report, drawing a heavy police presence in the area of Glendora Elementary School.
