Recovered stolen property
300 E. Redondo Ave.

A property crimes detective received a call from a theft victim stating that the victim’s stolen Ipad had pinged at this address. The detective responded and made contact with an unknown man loitering in the area of the signal. The man was nervous and fidgeting, finally taking off running. With the help of an alert citizen the detective was able to apprehend him nearby. Romeo Olivarez, 30, had the stolen Ipad, several other stolen property items and a handgun in his possession. He was booked on several charges.
