On February 6, 2017, at approximately 4 a.m., a Whittier Police Officer was patrolling the 15800 block of Whittier Blvd. and observed three masked suspects. Upon seeing the officer, the suspects began to flee and one of them was subsequently detained and found to be in possession of a pair bolt cutters.

Arrested was 29-year-old Thomas Toronny of Pomona. He was booked and charged with possession of burglary tools and has since been arraigned at Bellflower Court. It is unknown at this time which business or residence the would-be burglars were targeting.
