Burglary, freeway-chase suspects to face charges
Two men who allegedly burglarized a Glendale motorcycle shop and led police on a pursuit are expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
The men -- Enrique Beltran, 37, of Hawthorne and Carlos Luna, 28, of Inglewood -- were arrested Saturday morning after California Highway Patrol officers chased them on several freeways and eventually stopped them at the 105 Freeway and Hawthorne Boulevard, officials said. A third suspect inside the vehicle fled the area before authorities arrested the pair, they said.
They allegedly stole approximately 50 motorcycle jackets and about five pairs of women's leather pants at 6:18 a.m. from the Pro-Italia Motorcycle shop in the 3300 block of North Verdugo Road, according to Glendale police reports.
Beltran was booked on suspicion of burglary, grand theft auto, evading police, possessing narcotics paraphernalia, grand theft and an outstanding warrant, according to Glendale police reports. Luna was booked on suspicion of burglary, grand theft and possessing methamphetamine, the reports said.
