3 Caught Following Walnut Burglary

The men drove off but sheriff's deputies caught up with their alleged getaway vehicle, it was reported.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies had three men in custody Thursday, following a botched burglary attempt, it was reported.

The men were caught when deputies stopped their alleged getaway vehicle following the burglary, reported at 12:33 p.m. Wednesday in the 900 block of Hunters Hill Drive, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported.

According to authorities, the suspects knocked on the front door of a home and -- apparently thinking no one was home -- went to the rear to open the back door.

A resident was home and spooked the would-be burglars, according to officials

West Covina residents Juan Trujillo and Jonathan Cortez, and La Puente resident Jose Sanchez -- all of them 21 -- were arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary and booked into the Walnut/Diamond Bar station jail, pending a Tuesday court date in Pomona, SGVTribune.com reported.
