On August 5, 2014 at 10:20 a.m. Officer Fitzpatrick while on patrol in the area of Sweetlef and Edinger for residential burglaries, contacted Dung Hua, 49, of El Monte. Hua was acting suspiciously near a home, and Officer Fitzpatrick investigated further.  Hua was eventually arrested on a traffic warrant and a search produced rubber gloves, a screwdriver, and multiple pieces of jewelry in Hua’s pockets. Officers conducted a search of the area for recently burglarized residences and vehicles but found none.  Hua was booked into Orange County Jail on the warrant as the investigation continued. 
 
At approximately 3:30 p.m. a resident on Crocus contacted Police to report their residence had been burglarized.  Officers responded and found the point of entry was through a window on the backside of the residence.  The victim said multiple pieces of jewelry were taken and described several pieces of jewelry that were in Hua’s possession.  The victim was able to positively identify the jewelry in Hua’s possession as items taken from the residence.  Hua was subsequently booked on burglary, possession of stolen property, and possession of burglary tools in addition to the traffic warrant.
