On Friday, March 29, 2013, deputies from the Altadena Sheriff’s Station along with the Federal Bureau of Investigations served a search warrant in Altadena. The location of the warrant was in the 200 Block of West Harriet Street. Numerous people were detained and the primary suspect was arrested for weapons violations.
Inside the home evidence of narcotics use was found and the house was described as in complete disarray. Deputies described the residence as having â€œtrash piled inside and outside and cabinets and most of the interior doors were kicked in or broken.
Local residents said the home has been an issue for the neighborhood for quite some time with foot and vehicle traffic and people hanging out in the front. Detectives commented the home was obviously an issue â€œin an otherwise mostly pristine neighborhood. â€
This residence is one of the many focuses of the Altadena detectives and this operation is not only about crime reduction but working together with area residents as well as other agencies in order to improve quality of life in neighborhoods such as this one.
