Two men wanted in connection with a liquor store burglary were

cornered by police early Tuesday morning in a residential garage,

police said.

Tremain Campbell, 32, of Ontario, and Lawrence Douglas, 20, of

Monrovia, led police on a brief foot chase after they were spotted by

patrol officers carrying a safe in an alley behind Favorite Liquor &


Deli, 533 S. Victory Blvd., officials said.

"They went over fences and through yards," Burbank Police Sgt. Jay

Jette said. "They were eventually captured in a garage in the 200

block of Virginia [Avenue about 7:30 a.m.]"

Homeowner Bill Jensen said he saw one of the men when he went to

the garage with his dog.

"The dog stood by the door and wouldn't go in," Jensen said. "I

saw one of them laying in the back of the ['57 Chevy] pickup. I told

him to stay there, that I had a dog with me. He didn't move."

The second suspect was found hiding in the garage attic, Jensen


Also arrested were Lafran McNulty, 28, of Monrovia, and Shamika

Jackson, 18, of Pasadena, who were in a getaway vehicle at the store,

Jette said.

Charges have not been filed against the four, who are all being

held on $20,000 bond, Jette said.

The pair broke into the store through a rear door about 3:50 a.m.,

and allegedly took $10,000 in cigarettes, $700 in cash, and a safe

containing additional money, Jette said.

Police found the cigarettes and cash piled up outside a rear door.

"What happens is the car shows up and everything is loaded up,"

Jette said. "The car would be there for a minimal amount of time."

Campbell and Douglas were arrested without incident and were not

armed, Jette said. The department is unaware of any similar

burglaries in the city, he added.

Glendale Police provided a helicopter, and Los Angeles Police

provided a helicopter and a K9 unit for the chase.
