LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators say at least 25 homes were burglarized while residents were on vacation after a list of suspended subscriptions was taken from the Los Angeles Times.
Detective Jack Jordan says Wednesday they are looking for more victims and have confirmed at least 25 burglaries were related to the conspiracy.
Authorities say 51-year-old Duane Van Tuinen allegedly stole the lists from the Los Angeles Times when he was contracted to work there as an office machine repairman.
Tuinen is accused of passing the list on to a group of thieves, including 43-year-old Randall Whitmore, 43-year-old Joshua Box and 52-year-old Edwin Valentine.
Homes in the San Gabriel Valley, Hacienda Heights, Diamond Bar, Walnut and Chino Hills were robbed of collectible coins and swords, musical instruments, computers and jewelry.
