Whittier Mansion Burglary


At approximately 11:00 p.m. Tuesday night, Whittier PD responded to a reported burglary in the 16100 block of Peterson Dr. Homeowners arrived to their large home to hear sounds emitting from within the residence. Officers arrived at the gated community complex and began locking down the area around the house with possible suspect(s) still in the home. Officers continued to hear sounds emit from the residence during this time. When officers entered the home, an upstairs balcony glass slider crashed and shattered. The suspect(s) possibly ran through the glass door before leaping off the balcony. They remain at large, and a perimeter was established as officers attempted to locate. Whittier PD is handling the investigation. La Habra K-9 units and LASD Air resources were assisting in the search. It is unknown what was taken in the burglary at this time.
