Man Arrested After Burglary Attempt in San Marino

A 36-year-old man suspected of attempting to burglarize a home in San Marino Saturday was arrested.

San Marino Police Department officers found Temple City resident Mario Angel Prado standing on the front porch of a house in the 2500 block of Fairfield Place, near Santa Anita Avenue, when they answered a call of an attempted burglary, according to Sgt. Jeremy Bestpitch.

The resident of the house called police at 11:49 a.m. and reported a man started entering the house through an open side door but the resident closed the door, Bestpitch said.

“As the resident was contacting the police, the male looked over the adjoining fence and walked out of sight,” Bestpitch said.

Prado was booked at the Pasadena City Jail for suspicion of residential burglary of an inhabited dwelling, with bail set at $50,000, Bestpitch said.
