Four men were arrested in Rosemead in connection with multiple burglary attempts, authorities said Thursday.

The men were apprehended Wednesday while driving a stolen vehicle near the intersection of Muscatel Avenue and Valley Boulevard after a resident reported seeing them allegedly trying to break into a house, said Lt. Thomas McNeal of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The men allegedly attempted to rob two Rosemead homes Wednesday morning, one in the 4100 block of Muscatel Avenue and another in the 8700 block of Hovey Street, McNeal said. But the suspects didn't manage to steal anything.

At the time of the arrest, the men were driving a red Chevy Suburban which had been stolen several days earlier and was allegedly used by the men to burglarize a Los Angeles home Sunday, McNeal said. Deputies searching the car found burglary tools inside, he said.
