The writer of this news story should have reviewed his or her work prior to publishing it. "The resident was asleep Thursday morning when they heard a knock on the door..." should have read "he (or she)" in place of "they" as a resident is not plural and the pronoun "they" refers to a group. "The resident was asleep Thursday morning when he (or she) heard a knock..." is grammatically correct. The writer continued with "They then saw two men jump the side gate into the backyard when they called police..." Again, who are the "they" that to whom the writer refers? The writer mentions a resident, not residents. In addidtion, the reference to who actually made the call is awkward and not clearly stated and could actually refer to the two men running through the yard..

Sheesh, this is elementary school stuff. Am I picky? You bet I am. One error would have been a simple mistake but two identical errors? Whomever was responsible for proofreading the article before publication should be embarrassed.

Why don't we worry about the big picture. Notify our love ones who live in the area and warn them about these idiots. I'm (sorry Debbie) I am sure this is a burglary crew from Los Angeles that is working the area. The crooks knock on doors to see if anyone is home, and if no one answers they break in from the backyard. Acknowledge people knocking at your front door, or make it look like someone is home. If the crooks believe someone is home they most likely will move on.

I don't answer my door, because-well...I don't have to. However, I do have a lead surprise for anyone who would like to get a better look at the inside of my home.

I believe you are correct about the burglary crew, but who really wants them to move on?
Shoot first, then call the police-problem solved.

I like your thinking...Good job residents and Cops. Cops should further investigate the nearby neighborhoods. It doesn't make sense for a crook crew from L.A., including a(transient) end up burglarizing homes in Glendora!! Seems fishy...These guys may have had previous business in those areas...
Glendora residents and Police keep up the good work!!!!
