CALABASAS (CBS) — A suspected jewelry thief accused of trying to break into a Calabasas home was behind bars, sheriff’s deputies said.
The suspect, whose name has been withheld, was arrested about 2:55 p.m. Saturday following the dispatch of a deputy to a “possible burglary in progress.”
Upon arrival, the suspect was apparently spotted coming out of a garage door, according to deputies at the Malibu-Lost Hills Station.
Detectives investigating the break in later determined the suspect had tried to pry open a door with a knife, deputies said.
A subsequent search of the man’s home turned up several items of jewelry that deputies suspect were stolen.
Anyone with information on the suspect or the crime is asked to contact authorities at (818) 878-1808.
