Alhambra burglars pose as cable TV repairmen, police say

Two Southland men were in jail Sunday after they apparently dressed as Time-Warner Cable repairmen to break into a Los Angeles County home.

Alhambra police arrested Perre Michael Chang, 30, of Laguna Niguel and Daniel Wardming Quon, 26, of Pasadena on suspicion of burglary Friday after responding to a report of a possible break-in from a resident in the 2000 block of South Stoneman Avenue at about 4 p.m., according to a statement released by police Sunday.

Officers arrived and caught the two suspects fleeing from the scene -- wearing Time Warner uniform shirts, according to the police statement.

A Time-Warner spokesman did not immediately return emails concerning the incident Sunday.

Alhambra police, who saw a slight increase in residential burglaries in August, according to the statement, believe the suspects may be connected to other crimes.

The pair were being held Sunday on $50,000 bail each.
