Altadena sheriff deputies set up a containment to catch a suspect on the west side of town, south of Altadena Drive to Devirian and from about LIncoln to Olive.
According to scanner traffic, officers were looking for a suspect, and had deployed the helicopter and dogs to flush him out. Shortly after a call came in for an ambulance to treat a dog bite, the containment was broken down.
We're trying to contact Altadena Sheriff station for details. but keep getting bounced to unanswered phones. We'll keep trying.
UPDATE: Crescenta Valley Station reports that the suspect was involved in a combination of stolen vehicle and burglary, and was identified by a deputy on patrol rather than a call to the station. The suspect was subdued by a police dog, and is currently (5 PM) at the hospital being treated for injuries. He has not yet been taken to the Crescenta Valley Station jail nor booked.
