A resident on Torrey Pine discovered an unknown suspect(s) attempted to break into her residence. The incident is believed to have occurred between January 15th and January 17th. Unknown suspect(s) climbed onto the roof and attempted to pry the second story bedroom window open, breaking the window in the process. No entry was made into the residence, and it appears the suspect(s) were scared off.

Officers responded to ÒLucky MoneyÓ Check Cashing on Alvarado Boulevard at 11:51 a.m. to investigate a strong armed robbery. The suspect entered the business and was denied service. The suspect then charged a patron in the business and grabbed money from the victimÕs hands. The suspect fled the store on foot.
